Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest NHS teaching trusts in the country. It provides a wide range of general and specialist clinical services and is a base for medical education, training and research.

The Trust comprises four hospitals - the John Radcliffe Hospital, Churchill Hospital and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre in Headington and the Horton General Hospital in Banbury.

Our values, standards and behaviours define the quality of clinical care we offer and the professional relationships we make with our patients, colleagues and the wider community. We call this Delivering Compassionate Excellence and its focus is on our values of compassion, respect, learning, delivery, improvement and excellence. These values put patients at the heart of what we do and underpin the quality healthcare we would like for ourselves or a member of our family. Watch how we set out to deliver compassionate excellence via the OUH YouTube channel.

Many of our recruitment programmes use V alue Based Interviewing to identify those who have the skills we seek, who share our values and who are able to deliver compassionate excellence from the outset. We know that this makes a significant difference to your job satisfaction and above all the outcomes and experience of our patients and their families.

We are looking to recruit an experienced, organised and motivated Patient Pathway Administrator to provide an efficient administrative service to Breast Surgery within the Surgical Administration department based at the Churchill Hospital.

The post holder will work directly with the clinical team and we are keen to appoint someone who is enthusiastic and motivated and who can manage the fluctuating demands of the role. You will have excellent word processing skills and well-developed communication, organisational and time management skills. An ability to prioritise effectively in a busy environment is essential. You will need to be flexible and have the necessary secretarial/administrative experience required for such a post. Previous medical secretary experience would be an advantage. You will have a good general level of education including GCSE English grade C or equivalent as well as excellent word processing skills.

You will be passionate about our business, creating a culture of continuous improvement, where patient welfare is at the heart of all you do.
