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 Clinical Measurement Group is looking to appoint a specialist Healthcare Scientist to undertake and develop intra-operative spinal cord monitoring (IONM) services, which the team provide for the Trust. The post is an exciting opportunity that would suit candidates who are either clinical neurophysiologists or clinical scientists with significant knowledge of and experience in evoked potential monitoring.

The main role of this post is to provide multimodal neurophysiological measurements of spinal cord function of patients undergoing corrective spinal deformity surgery or tumour removal. The successful candidate would be expected to help provide specialist advice and training to other professions around these investigations, particularly in the area of motor evoked potential monitoring. Working with the Head of Group, the post holder would also have responsibilities to ensure these services are efficiently provided, reported, documented and audited.

We are looking for a suitably qualified, motivated individual who is able to work flexibly, both independently and as a member of a dedicated team. Good communication skills are essential to relay critical information to the entire surgical team and while working under pressure. The post requires partaking in out of hours duties including evening and weekend work. The department encourages continuing personal training and development in this friendly and dynamic organisation, which seeks to innovate and strives for excellence in delivering first class patient care.
