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.

Named nurse/professional - safeguarding children


Band 7  – 37.5 hours (part time considered)


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dynamic, motivated professional to join a supportive and friendly Safeguarding Children Team as a Named Nurse/Professional within the OUH.

You would need to be an experienced midwife/children nurse or community specialist practitioner with significant post registration experience, and be able to demonstrate knowledge and experience in the field of safeguarding children.


If you can work as an autonomous practitioner, have excellent communication skills and have a keen desire to improve the outcomes for vulnerable children and their families then this may be the post for you.
