Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation 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 four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton General 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 Value 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 significant difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

“Coming to the Early Phase Clinical Trials Unit is like having a day out. I feel like a person first rather than a patient” (Patient, April 18)

“It’s the staff here who make the whole experience a good one” (Patient, Feb 2018)

“Getting to know the patients and being able to provide such good care to them while on a trial is the reason I love my job” (Research Nurse, May 2018)

 

Do you want to help make a difference here in Oxford? Come and join our dynamic research team in this supportive environment dedicated to delivering exceptional care to patients on novel cancer treatments.

We are currently looking for a registered nurse, who has in interest in clinical research, to provide support to our team of Research Nurses, and one who is keen to broaden their knowledge of providing holistic patient centred care and support to patients with cancer.

 

The role involves monitoring and assessing patients following treatment with novel agents, capturing vital data to influence the success of cancer research, collecting and processing blood samples in our on-site laboratory, providing a triage service for unwell cancer patients, providing holistic patient centred care for patient volunteers, working within a friendly, supportive and fun team.

 

Prior experience working within the field of Oncology/Haematology or research, is not essential as full training and support will be given. The role offers exceptional development opportunities, both professionally and academically. We pride ourselves on being able to support staff with further education/courses to develop their skills and knowledge.

 

Our unit is open from 0730-2200 Monday to Thursday, and 0730 to 1800 on Fridays. We have weekends and bank holidays off. Generally no night duty, but due to new trials opening regularly, there is a possibility of very occasional night shifts.
