Assistant Practitioner: Neuroscience Ward (Green & IU)
The Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the most respected Trusts in the country. This is your opportunity to join one of our foremost clinical services.
The Oxford Neurosciences Department is acknowledged globally for its excellence in clinical research, treatment and patient care, and this is a particularly exciting time for neuroscience nursing. We are reconfiguring our inpatient service provision and creating four brand new wards, and as such we are looking to add to both our Neurology and Neurosurgery nursing teams.
We provide care for patients suffering from a number of conditions and who undergo a wide range of invasive and interventional procedures, for example craniotomy for brain tumours, haemorrhage or trauma, implantation of deep brain stimulators and spinal surgery. We also have a surgical short stay and investigation unit which accommodates patients having radiological investigations or minor procedures such as lumbar punctures and muscle biopsies.
This is a fantastic opportunity to learn, develop or extend your existing skills in this fascinating specialty. Previous experience of caring for patients in a neurosurgical setting is not a necessity, but a keen interest in this field together with the drive and commitment to help deliver the highest standard of patient care are. We work closely with the Neuroscience Specialist Nurses, both in the Hospital and in the Community settings.
Successful candidates can expect excellent learning opportunities, our highly regarded Neuroscience Education Programme includes a week long Neuro-Orientation Programme and regular Neuro specific study days.
