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.

A rewarding job AND no unsocial hours!

Career development within the exciting arena of Specialist Surgery Outpatients is on offer here at the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. We are looking for band 5 nurses to join us in delivering nurse-led clinics in ENT and Plastic Surgery.

Your career with us will start with mastering pre-operative assessment skills and knowledge in the range of interesting and complex surgery that we provide. As you advance towards becoming a Band 6 Nurse Practitioner, we will support you in developing skills in our Plastics Dressing Clinic and/or in Aural Care.

This is the ideal job for someone with enthusiasm to progress in a specialist nursing role as well as being motivated and able to contribute to the ongoing development of nursing practice through a genuine interest in the specialist fields.
We pride ourselves in delivering the highest quality care and best experience for our patients within a friendly multi-disciplinary team and can promise you a robust induction and on-going training to ensure you have the competence and confidence to cultivate Advanced Nurse Practitioner skills.

We offer an excellent learning environment; supporting all grades of staff and students in their professional development and we were thrilled to be ‘Highly Commended’ in the Oxford Brookes University Student Placement of the Year awards.

If you are a newly qualified nurse, you will join the Oxford University Hospital’s Foundation Programme. This is the start of your journey with our Trust and will link to a clear career pathway to continue developing your skills over the coming years. The programme runs across twelve months and consists of up to twelve study days aiming to follow on and develop the learning you have achieved during your training and help you apply this to potentially complex clinical situations.

Our department is open Monday to Friday. We recognise the importance of a work –life balance and therefore working patterns include the potential to work full-time ‘compressed’ hours (37.5 hours in 4 days), part-time early (08:00 to 13:30) and late (13:30 to 18:00) shifts, or a combination of these.
