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.

The Orthotic service within Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust Orthotic provides the opportunity to work in specialist practice within the areas of foot and ankle, paediatrics, spinal, neuro-rehabilitation and gait analysis. We would like the successful applicant to be an integral part of our team and to bring new and additional skills to enhance patient care outcomes.  

The Orthotic department has a large clinical and workshop facility in a purpose built modern unit which uses CADCAM technology and has integrated working practices between skilled technicians and orthotists.
