Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has been rated as Good by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

We are a responsive and innovative Foundation Trust that places our values of Caring, Safe and Excellent at the heart of everything we do. We take great pride in our staff and believe that investing in you is key to us achieving our vision of outstanding care delivered by outstanding people.

We work with a wide range of partner organisations to deliver care and support to people in their own homes and from a number of hospitals and community bases. We focus on delivering care as close to home as possible.


Do you enjoy working in a busy environment where no two shifts are the same?

Would you like to work in a highly supportive team on a flexible basis?

If so our Minor Injury Unit and the GP Out of Hours Service is the place for you!

The Out of hours service manages approximately 11, 000 patient contacts per month whilst our minor injury units treat approximately 8000 patients across the service per month, making a real difference, providing care closer to home and avoiding admission to hospital wherever possible and appropriate.

As a Flexible Emergency Practitioner you will be working as Registered Nurse or Paramedic. You will need to have the desire to autonomously assess and treat patients within their own home, with telephone consultations and within the Urgent Care bases. You will have excellent clinical assessment and decision-making skills along with the ability to lead together with a passion to provide patient centered care. You will be working across a shift system which includes nights, weekends and bank holidays supporting patients when they are unable to access their own GP services.

You will be joining a multi-disciplinary team who pride themselves on their excellent team working and support of each other whilst treating a diverse range of conditions.

You will have excellent opportunities for learning and development with access to a wide range of courses to develop your clinical skills.

This role will provide you with a challenging but rewarding opportunity to utilise your skills and to deliver excellent care to a wide group of patients. We are happy to consider flexible workers, experienced in urgent care or to support those who want to join us at this exciting time of service growth and development.
