Fracture Prevention Specialist Nurse Practitioner - COVID-19 in Oxford

Job description

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 Value 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.

Specialist Nurse Practitioner

Oxfordshire Fracture Prevention Service

We have an excellent opportunity to join our Fracture Prevention nurse team and one of the country’s leading teams in Osteoporosis and Fracture Prevention.

 

Fragility fractures could be prevented by timely interventions to reduce fracture risk. A Fracture Liaison Service (FLS) systematically identifies and treats all eligible patients aged over 50 within a local population who have suffered a fragility fracture, with the aim of reducing their risk of subsequent fractures.

 

We are currently recruiting a Nurse to join our Gold standard team. We will provide you with training to increase your knowledge and skills in this exciting team through national and local training programmes. The role involves working within a team, virtually and physically across all sites, patient experience being at the forefront of our service.

 

The successful candidate will be trained to identify, assess and recommend treatment for individuals at risk of Osteoporosis who are either inpatients at the hospitals, attending as an outpatient or having been identified through radiology/artificial intelligence.

 

Experience in this field is desirable but not essential as full training will be given.

 

This role has great potential for personal development and your skills and expertise will be highly valued by the team.
