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.

 We are recruiting a haemostasis and blood conservation practitioner to join our existing team. We offer all aspects of haemostasis management to a wide variety of surgical specialities across the Trust. As a member of this team you would develop the competence to provide  blood conservation and haemostasis management services, including cell salvage, ‘point of care’ coagulation monitoring, and a range of related haemostasis procedures as part of patient blood management.

The post has the potential to increase to fulltime in the future.

 

The key attributes required are:

·         Experience ( two years minimum) in Operating Theatres

·         Experience or knowledge in cell salvage and haemostasis techniques is desirable but not required as training will be provided

·         Flexibility to work across all OUHFT sites

·         Confidence and ability to advise senior medical colleagues on results of tests
