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.

Do you enjoy a challenge?

Would you like the opportunity to develop your skills in emergency surgery?

We currently have opportunities for staff (ODPs or nurses) to develop in this area of practice. Whether you have experience, are newly qualified or looking for a change in direction we can offer you a challenging but rewarding role in patient care.

The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country and enjoys a national reputation for the quality of its services in healthcare.

The John Radcliffe Main Theatres provides expertise and excellence in emergency surgery including upper and lower GI, gynaecology, urology, spinal, trauma and vascular surgery. We are the Regional Centre for the provision of trauma, vascular and spinal surgery for adults and children. The operating theatres offer a wide range of general and specialist clinical services with links to the Oxford Universities for education, training and research.

We are an enthusiastic, passionate and caring ‘scrub’ team providing expert care in an acute surgical setting. We have educational opportunities to support your development. There is a comprehensive education strategy in place to underpin the development of all grades within theatres to facilitate career progression. We endeavour to provide a supportive learning environment which includes preceptorship, supernumerary status while achieving competencies, an in-house perioperative course and leadership development.

A flexible attitude is required to deliver patient care and meet service demands. You may be based on one site but there is an expectation for you to be deployed to other units to provide assistance as required.

Full time posts are available which include a commitment to day / night rotation, Bank Holiday, weekend working and on-call participation.

Interviews will take place on the 5th April 2018 at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxfordshire.
