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.

Roald Dahl specialist children’s nurses provide support, information and practical care for seriously ill children, and support the whole family too. At Oxford Universities Hospitals, we are very excited to be developing and expanding our paediatric haematology service. You will be based within our purpose built Children’s Hospital working with a supportive team of Nurses. The OUH Foundation Trust values are at the forefront of the care we provide and our patient feedback is excellent. We are committed to the educational development of our Nurses and enjoy strong links with Oxford Brookes University as well as a wealth of expertise shared amongst our Teams.
In partnership with Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, we are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and dynamic nurse who has a range of experience in looking after children with non-malignant blood conditions, most of whom have a haemoglobinopathy, to lead and grow this specialist area. With an increasing caseload and existing strong links with our DGH’s within the Thames Valley Network, the right person will work with the lead consultant paediatric haematologist to build on these foundations to create a strong family-centred service. If you have experience in looking after children and indeed adults with non-malignant haematological disorders and would welcome the opportunity to develop your own career and our service with support from Roald Dahl’s, please do apply.
