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 Centre of Respiratory Medicine is seeking to employ a Clinical support worker to join the Adult Respiratory Sleep Disorders Unit at the Churchill Hospital.  This exciting  supportive role will incorporate a range of outpatient activities in our Unit on a Thursday and Friday  (10-6 pm  or 9-5 pm )

The Adult Respiratory Sleep Disorders unit investigates and treats patients with sleep-related breathing disorders.  The Unit currently supports more than 12000 obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) patients on Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP). We also provide home Non- Invasive Ventilation to more than 600 patients with ventilation failure.  We have six overnight sleep rooms where inpatient diagnostic studies take place four nights per week, or alternatively provide patients with a home sleep study throughout the week.

This role will involve the provision of the diagnostic equipment for home sleep studies and then the setting up of continuous positive airways pressure (CPAP) therapy for patients diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. Ongoing support for the patients is given via the telephone or face to face. This post will utilise your many computer and communication skills to provide this ongoing support to patients to help them to manage their CPAP or NIV use.  The team consists of nurses, physiologists and physiotherapists as well as our Doctors to provide a multidisciplinary team approach.
