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.

Stroke Clinical Research Nurse Vacancy

Title:               Stroke Clinical Research Nurse

Job status:     WTE, One year contract initially. 

Salary:           Grade 6 AFC grading.

An exciting opportunity has become available for a Band 6 Research Nurse who will work as part of the team responsible for the management and delivery of research studies in stroke patients, admitted to the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.

You will have either stroke nursing or research experience; effective time management skills; flexibility, enjoy variety, and have the ability to work independently. You must have confident communication skills to work with acutely unwell patients, in a variety of hospital settings. The post holder will learn about all the research studies on our stroke portfolio, and must follow procedures safely and appropriately, with senior colleagues available to advise as required. 

A keen interest in research is essential but no experience is needed, as all training can be provided, but venepuncture is desirable.  Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training will provide you with an understanding of how trials should be run safely and efficiently, and the national and international regulations which have arisen to ensure the safety of all participants. You will acquire specific skills (e.g. MRI safety course, centrifuging skills, imaging transfer) as well as detailed information about all the trials, and extensive knowledge about the clinical care of stroke patients.

The hours worked may include evenings and weekends, but nights are not expected. The team research cover will ideally cover seven days a week, but are dependent on currently open studies, and we are happy to discuss personal requirements. A degree of fitness is required as we need to respond promptly to the emergency bleep system, which may be several times a day, anywhere across the site.
