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 Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust recognises the importance of play and the impact it can have on a patient’s experience, so we are looking for someone who is committed to meeting the needs and engaging effectively with children and young people showing care and compassion in their work.

 

This post is to be based on a busy surgical ward where the patients come in for surgery under the Neurosurgery, Ent and Plastics surgery teams. On Robins ward there are also long term patients that are in Hospital for specialist rehabilitation and we also have Theatre Direct admission within the ward area which requires play specialists support. You would be working alongside an experienced play specialist and be part of a wider team based throughout the Trust.

The successful applicant will be joining a team of experienced Health Play specialists who are established and involved in the promotion of the play services throughout the Children’s Hospital and the Trust. You would also be supported by the management team.

We look forward to hearing from you if you are interested in joining this great team.
