The 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 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.

We are looking for a pharmacist who is excited about the vision we share at the Oxford University Hospital NHS Trust. We are one of the largest acute teaching Trusts in the UK, with a national and international reputation for the excellence of its services and its role in teaching and research. Our services are provided over four sites in Oxford and Banbury.

As a pharmacy department we have a strong clinical presence and provide a comprehensive range of pharmaceutical care and extended roles to a range of cutting edge clinical areas. We are looking for a Band 6 clinical pharmacist to join our rotational development program, focusing on medical and surgical inpatients.  You would be expected to provide a high class clinical pharmacy service, improving patient outcomes and hospital experience and ensuring medicines optimisation. We will provide a well-structured program aimed at supporting your introduction into clinical pharmacy and development as a clinical pharmacist.  You will be working within multidisciplinary teams so good communication skills and an enthusiastic outlook are a must. You will need to demonstrate a high level of professionalism and a commitment to continuing professional development. Rotations are 6 months long and you will have access to a large number of consultant pharmacists and highly recognised specialist pharmacists to support your development.

We are a forward thinking department who are implementing a series of new ways of working that will deliver significant improvements to our patients care and our financial goals. Electronic prescribing is in place for all inpatients and a large number of outpatient areas. This, together with the introduction of new robot technology and a comprehensive ward based pharmacy service, is changing the way we provide pharmaceutical care and are perceived by our peers.
