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.


This coming Autumn, why not make the change to join Community Nursing?

Our new and exciting leadership team at City Community Hospital are looking for dynamic, motivated Registered Nurses who have experience from an acute or community setting, with a passion to care for older patients with a complexity of health needs providing sub-acute and rehabilitation recovery.

We believe in providing a nurturing and supportive environment for our nurses to expand their core skills and will provide you with a fantastic induction and training programme.  You will have excellent communication skills, a positive and non-judgmental attitude with a strong commitment to learn within our wonderful Nurse-Lead team, working alongside other Healthcare Professionals.

You will be part of our successful initiative “Care Closer to Home” project, which enables us to support our patients and giving them the confidence to return home sooner following admittance to hospital.  There will also be potential for you to undertake development opportunities to work within our Older Adult Mental Health Wards.

At City Community Hospital, we are co-located with the Fulbrook Centre and our Hospital has lots of outdoor garden space for our patients and staff to enjoy. It is in the lovely setting of Headington in Oxford with excellent bus services and local shops nearby.

If you are looking to be part of a new, exciting team and enjoy a challenge, then we would love to hear from you.
