The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises of four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.

Many of our recruitment programmes use values-based interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significance difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

Fellowship in Endometriosis and advanced Minimal Access Surgery

Obstetrics & Gynaecology

The post will allow the successful candidate to work as part of the Oxford Endometriosis CaRe team including colorectal and urological surgeons and, at the end of the programme, to be able to clinically manage and laparoscopically operate women with all types and extent of endometriosis. We would expect the successful candidate to obtain the RCOG laparoscopic ATSM qualification during the course of their attachment. Depending on their pre-existing laparoscopic surgical skills this is likely to be achieved within 1-2 years.

The post also includes general duties in Obstetrics & Gynaecology including on call duties.

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology provides maternity and gynaecology service to the Oxford region and is responsible for over 7000 deliveries per year. It is also a tertiary referral centre for district general hospitals in Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Northamptonshire. This is an approved training centre for subspecialties in Maternal and Fetal Medicine, Gynaecological Oncology, Urogynaecology and Reproductive Medicine. It has close links to the Nuffield Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, University of Oxford.

The Delivery Suite is covered at all times by three tiers of specialist trainees: ST1-2 (or GP trainee or Foundation doctor), ST3-5 and ST6-7. During office hours the senior tier (ST6-7) is covered by a Consultant Obstetrician. Neonatologists, obstetric anaesthetists, junior and middle grade obstetricians are available at all times. All obstetric consultants maintain an active Delivery Suite role.
