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.

We are looking for an enthusiastic pharmacist to join our progressive renal pharmacy team at the Oxford Kidney Unit.  The renal pharmacy team is embedded within the multi-disciplinary team and has established collaborative working relationships with both senior and junior clinicians and nursing teams.

Desirable applicants will be proactive, committed to delivering high quality patient care and ready for the challenge of further advancing a service within thriving dialysis and renal day case units. 

The successful candidate will be primarily responsible for development and provision of a systematic clinical pharmacy service and medicine optimisation programme to renal dialysis units (on and off site) and renal day case, with support from other team members.  The post-holder will be expected to undertake service development through quality improvement initiatives and audit.  As an integral member of the renal MDT the post-holder will provide essential contribution to the Oxford Kidney Unit Guidelines group on medicine related clinical guidelines.

Previous renal experience would be preferable but you will be offered comprehensive training and assessment, to meet your needs.    The successful candidate should ideally be an independent prescriber or currently/ prepared to be enrolled to complete the training.
