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.

Horton General Hospital (linked with & working occasionally at Oxford Haemophilia & Thrombosis Centre)

Band 5/6 thrombosis nurse specialist

Full time but part time hours considered

 The aim is for this role to develop to a band 6 following a period of training and competency-based assessment-estimated to take place over 6-12 months.

 The Thrombosis team is based chiefly at the Horton General Hospital in the anti coagulation clinic and newly set up DVT diagnostic clinic, with some training at the Oxford Haemophilia & Thrombosis Centre at the Churchill Hospital.

The thrombosis team consists of a DVT Service, an Anti coagulation Service and a VTE prevention service.

The Anti coagulation Service is open from 8.00am to 6.00pm (Monday to Friday) at the Churchill and  the Horton Hospital.  The service is responsible for the management of patients in Oxfordshire taking anti coagulation medication.

The DVT Service is open from 9.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday and 8.00am to 13.00pm at weekends and bank holidays.  This service runs a ‘one-stop shop’ DVT diagnostic clinic 7 days a week and manages patients with suspected and confirmed DVT. This service currently runs only at the Churchill Hospital but there are exciting plans to expand to the Horton Hospital in the next 12 months. The clinic is interesting, fast paced, and nurse led.

The successful candidate will begin by training in the anticoagulation service and after 6 months will train in the DVT clinic service. Once trained the post holder will rotate through the DVT and thrombosis service and maintain a close working relationship with the VTE prevention service.
