Band 2

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.

A new career opportunity has arisen in the caring profession

We are looking for motivated Nursing Assistants to join our team within the Acute General Medicine wards at the John Radcliffe Hospital. AGM has built up a reputation for delivering excellent and compassionate care to some of Oxfordshire’s most complex medical patients. We are delighted now to open a new short stay ward on level 5 that will need enthusiastic professionals.

Our wards are known for their high-performance and their energetic and enthusiastic teams that are constantly striving to go the extra mile for our patients.

We are committed to supporting your continuing professional and career development, which will give you the opportunity to enhance your skills and undertake further training within the acute setting of Short Stay Wards.

We are proud of our high standards of care and our supportive and friendly environment. You will join a team that treats our patients with dignity, compassion and respect to provide support and safe care for them.

You will assist in personal care for our patients, including washing, dressing, toileting and assisting with mobilising and feeding; as well as the maintenance of the patient environment in terms of cleanliness, tidiness and the restocking of supplies.

If you are someone who enjoys the challenge of meeting a wide range of patients’ individual needs in a fast-moving environment, values team working and has the ability to remain calm under pressure, we want to hear from you.
