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.

Remuneration: £62,300 to £76,500 which includes 1A banding payment.
Applications are invited for the above post at the Horton General Hospital, Banbury, and John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. The appointment commences immediately and is for a period of 12 months which can be extended by mutual agreement. The post offers an opportunity for senior middle grade doctors, who have achieved competencies at least ST5 level, to consolidate their clinical skills by working in a small friendly unit whilst gaining additional experience in a tertiary level department.
There is an opportunity to participate in RCOG ATSM skills modules where eligible candidates are appointed. The modules available are Advanced Labour Ward Practice, Advanced Antenatal Practice and Early Pregnancy.
The enhanced pay reflects the seniority of medical staff expected to fill the post. The regular sessions at the John Radcliffe Hospital will ensure that clinical skills are developed for the purposes of career progression.
