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.

The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust delivers healthcare services at the four main hospital sites, The JR II, The Churchill Hospital, the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre and the Horton Hospital. Services are also based in health centres, or adjoined to community hospitals across Oxfordshire. The Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy teams have merged into an integrated Therapies Service to support the development of a clinically led organisation and to meet the national and local improvement agenda for healthcare services.

The Occupational Therapy Service is committed to developing a quality service in this ever-changing environment. We offer regular supervision, in-service training, support post-graduate education and actively promote the personal development of all our team.

We work closely with our colleagues in the Trust and Community to ensure our clients and their carers achieve the maximum level of independence at the point of discharge, and are well prepared for the future.
