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 OCE is one of the few level 1A neurorehabilitation and disability management centres in the country and has a long-held reputation for clinical excellence in this field.  As a consultant therapist, you will join a multiprofessional team and will be critical to further enhancing the high quality services we currently provide and are looking to develop in the future.  Key components of this role include:

· Providing clinical expertise, consultation and direction to ensure the delivery of evidence-based, person-centred and clinically effective neurorehabilitation.

· Establishing partnerships with internal and external academic centres to lead a progressive research agenda that breaks new ground in establishing the most effective and innovative application of neurorehabilitation for patient benefit  

· Working alongside lead clinicians and managers to develop and implement new inpatient and ambulatory clinical models of rehabilitation that utilise technological and digital advancements to good effect, and

· Devising a learning and development curriculum for staff that maximises their knowledge, skills and capabilities in neurorehabilitation and fosters a culture of continuing professional development

We are very excited about this post; it not only establishes a critical role for the OCE, but it represents an important and progressive step towards the creation of more consultant and advanced practice AHP roles, as part of our workforce plan, and also supports us in developing and assimilating the expertise to form a dedicated centre for AHP research in acute and sub-acute care settings.
