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.

We are looking to appoint a confident and conscientious individual to join our team. The Trauma Outpatient Department comprises an outpatient clinic, plaster room and a four bed day surgery unit.

The department provides a range of speciality trauma clinics, pelvis, spine, hands, in addition to follow up clinics and daily New patient clinics. The department runs seven days a week so there is a requirement for weekend work on a rotational basis.

The plaster room provides a casting and splinting service for the trust (excluding A&E) which covers the inpatient trauma wards, other speciality wards, critical care areas, paediatric trauma and orthopaedics, and theatres.

The day surgery unit within the department is open two days per week for trauma patients only. The successful candidates will ideally have surgical experience in either inpatient or outpatient settings. The department has undergraduate students on placement so the post holder will be expected to gain a mentor qualification.

This is a very busy department seeing in excess of 600 outpatient attendances per week. Team work and flexibility is essential as is the ability to work under pressure. The Trust is a designated Major trauma centre and takes patients from across the Thames Valley.

The service offers and wide range of professional development opportunities and benefits from the support of two clinical educators. Informal visits are encouraged.
