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.

 BAND 3  Senior Nursing Assistant

 30 hours per week

If you have a genuine interest in Women’s Health, are flexible and self-motivated, then we would like to hear from you.  An exciting new post has become available in our busy gynaecology Pre Op Assessment  department. If you want to work within a supportive  environment assisting the nurses to provide care for women with a wide range of gynaecological conditions to ensure they are fit for surgery, then this could be the post for you. We operate on women for a variety of conditions including, infertility, urogynaecology, menstrual disorders, endometriosis and an urgent two week wait service  for post-menopausal bleeding.

You will be expected to work as part of a team in order to provide a comprehensive assessment to women prior to surgery to ensure they are in the state of optimum fitness. You will be carrying out ECG’s, taking blood and other supportive roles to the service.  You will assist in the maintenance of the patient environment in terms of cleanliness, tidiness and the restocking of supplies.

You will receive an annual appraisal and a personal development plan to enable you to have structure within your role.

This daytime post is for 30 hours per week, mostly Monday to Friday although there will be occasional evening and Saturday clinics. Previous experience would be an advantage; however training will be given to the successful candidate. Please write a detailed paragraph in the supporting information letting us know why you are interested in this particular post.
