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.


Did you know Didcot has its own Community Hospital? An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our team as a Registered Nurse.

We are a very friendly team and we would like you to join us to deliver excellent care to our patients who are with us for short stay rehabilitation following a fall, operation or infection.

We are looking to recruit an experienced and enthusiastic Registered Nurse to join our Nurse Led Multidisciplinary Team at this busy community hospital.

We currently have 17 beds on site caring for mainly older people who can be frail and complex. We aim to get people home with any support they require in a timely way. Our current length of stay is about 24 days.

We work in a multidisciplinary teamwork model with nursing, therapy, medics, pharmacy and admin who support and enable one another to provide the best outcomes for people. We work closely with our colleagues in other Community Hospitals across the county and are rated Good by CQC.

We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated people who care about people to deliver person centred care to the inpatient. We need people who are kind and caring and want to support older people to be as independent as possible. We can support newly qualified Registered Nurses and offer preceptorship. So, whether you are at the beginning of your career or an experienced Registered Nurse we would love you to join our team.

We can offer you full or part time hours.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.
