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.
The Specialist Surgery Directorate of the Oxford University Hospital NHS Trust is a diverse ensemble of clinical specialities: ENT, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery; Ophthalmology; Oral Maxillo-Facial Surgery; Head & Neck Services and Vascular Surgery.
We are looking to expand our Vascular Surgery Inpatient Ward Team. Our Unit offers a strong career developing opportunity for nurses committed to delivering the highest possible quality of patient care. It is an equally exciting opportunity to take up a role in which the primary objective is to play a major part in the delivery of a first class nursing service for our surgical patients and their families.
The successful applicant needs to have excellent communication and organisational skills and be able to work flexibly and effectively with all members of the multidisciplinary team (MDT).
We expect the applicant to already have fundamental clinical nursing skills; however, there will also be an opportunity to develop new skills in wound care assessment and management and managing pre and post-operative care of patients undergoing a range of vascular procedures. The role also provides an invaluable opportunity to develop skills in the discharge planning of patients with complex rehabilitation needs through a collaborative MDT approach.
Closing Date: 8th October 2019
