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.

We are looking for Band 5 Registered Nurses to join the team on the Surgical Emergency Unit.

The SEU is a fast paced and dynamic clinical area at the John Radcliffe Hospital, caring for patients with a wide range of general surgical conditions, covering upper and lower gastrointestinal, and hepatobiliary conditions. The unit has 50 in-patient beds across 3 ward areas and a nurse-led triage area which receives patients referred directly by their GP, the Emergency Department or out-patient clinics.

The successful applicant will demonstrate a passion for general surgical nursing, and have had experience in the acute setting within the last 6 months. Newly qualified applicants are also welcomed.

Confident, compassionate care delivery and excellent communication skills are essential for this role; the successful post holder will need to be a forward thinking, motivated, and professional nurse who is committed to providing a high standard of holistic care and can demonstrate an ability to work in partnership with patients and their families.

Our unit is in full support of the optional OUH Preceptorship Programme which is available to all newly qualified nurses within the first 6 months of commencing in clinical practice. As your career progresses within our unit through completion of the learning opportunities we offer, you may also be offered funding to study courses at Oxford Brookes University.

Internal rotation to nights and weekends is essential to this position.

Closing Date: 23rd October 2019

Planned Interview Date: 31st October 2019
