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.

For more information about our Values and Value Based Interviewing please visit  http://www.ouh.nhs.uk/about/vision-and-values/default.aspx


We currently have vacancies for both newly qualified and experienced nurses. The trauma wards take patients who have sustained a wide variety of injuries, for example, head and spinal injuries, polytrauma including pelvic and acetabular reconstruction, and fragility fractures in the elderly. Applicants must be able to demonstrate resilience together with the ability to work effectively in a busy and unpredictable emergency environment.

The trust is a designated Major Trauma Centre and takes patients from across the Thames Valley.
We offer a wide range of professional development opportunities and benefit from the support of two clinical educators. A preceptorship programme is available for new graduates. The trauma service has an active research culture with links to the Kadoorie Critical Care and Education Centre. Informal visits are encouraged, part time options will be considered.
