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 V alue 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.

Ward F is a busy orthopaedic surgical inpatient ward, we are looking for enthusiastic and individual nurses to join our team at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, in Headington, Oxford.
We have full or part time positions available and we can offer fixed or rotational posts to other departments.

This is a busy surgical ward that provides excellent opportunities for developing surgical nursing skills such as wound care, IVs, PCAs and epidural management. We care for patients following a wide range of musculoskeletal procedures including surgery for bone and soft tissue tumours, spinal surgery and joint replacements.

This offers the right individual the perfect opportunity to enhance and build on existing skills achieved during undergraduate training, when taking their first steps in their nursing career or in progressing further in their continued professional development. In return we can provide support, guidance and excellent learning opportunities. You will be supported by our Practice Development Team to complete the Band 5 Development programme. You will be encouraged to complete your mentor qualification and to take on extended clinical skills. We are also developing an accredited PG Cert in Trauma & Orthopaedic Practice.

If you are a newly qualified nurse, you will join the Oxford University Hospital's Foundation Programme. This is the start of your journey with our Trust and will link to a clear career pathway to continue developing your skills over the coming years.
