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.

The Urgent and Ambulatory Care Service in Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has positions available, whether via a substantive or flexible contract for experienced GPs to work within the Out-of-Hours service (OoHs) including overnight and remote (home working) shifts. The GP OoHs has countywide bases in Abingdon, Banbury, Bicester, Henley, Oxford and Witney. The OoHs is open Monday to Fri 18:30 to 08:00 (the following day), weekends and Public Holidays 08:00 to 08:00 (the following day).

We are looking for a proactive, dedicated, dynamic individual with a passion for delivering timely, safe and excellent patient care and who values working in a “can-do” team culture where staff are supported and developed.

The role includes

  • Managing an Out of Hours case load, dealing with a wide range of presenting health care needs and undiagnosed problems.
  • Provide remote support to telephone consultations
  • Triage a variety of calls and cases ranging from base appointments up to more complex cases requiring hospital admissions or referrals to specialists.
  • Work towards completing 6 quality telephone consultations per hour or 4 base visits per hour.

We provide free medical indemnity cover, a tailored comprehensive induction programme, in addition to a supportive working environment. There is comprehensive operational support, within the bases, on home visits and virtually. We will provide all the equipment you’ll need to work.

We also offer home working, flexible working hours and a competitive salary.

Successful applicants will be fully qualified GPs with GMC registration and inclusion on the English Medical Performers List.

Candidates should also hold evidence of basic life support training and safeguarding children (L3) and adults (L1) training alongside annual appraisal and revalidation evidence.

Ideal applicants will also have had experience of participating in Out of Hours telephone consultation.

Our OoHs GPs work closely with our team of administrative Coordinators, Emergency Care Practitioners in Minor Injuries Units and Hospital at Home Service to deliver patient care across the county. The service is looking to grow a culture of team-working and skills sharing to deliver safe and responsive care to patients. The OoHs GPs also have access and opportunities to increase links with our Emergency Multidisciplinary Units (EMUs) in Abingdon and Witney and Rapid Access Care Unit (RACU) at Henley.
