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 Maternity Ultrasound Department currently has a vacancy for a part time Maternity Support Worker who is willing to work 7.30am – 4.30pm Tuesday & Wednesday. Saturday hours may apply.


Would you like to join an already established team in providing an important service for our patients. You will primarily be taking patient’s bloods as part of the national screening programme for Down’s, Edward’s and Patau’s syndrome, ordering stock & stocking scan rooms, alongside chaperoning & escorting patients between departments.


The role will also include admin duties: working on the reception desk receiving patients, fielding phone calls, filing and making appointments.


To join our friendly but busy department you will need to demonstrate outstanding communication skills, be highly motivated and have empathy and the ability to deal with patients and all levels of staff. Enthusiasm, flexibility, initiative and a willingness to learn are essential. You must already be trained in venepuncture.
