Do you have a passion for high quality patient care? Do you thrive in an environment where the facilities are excellent and you can learn from others? Are you committed to keeping abreast of new technology developments in your chosen field?
Here, you will take ownership of care programmes for dialysis patients with end stage renal disease or acute renal failure, working closely with dieticians, counsellors and other specialists. By ensuring that care pathways are tailored to meet clinical requirements, work, family and social needs, you will help provide the stable environment, emotional support and independence patients need to achieve required outcomes.
You must be a Registered Nurse with a current NMC pin and, ideally, a recordable Renal Nursing qualification. We also welcome applications from Registered Nurses with non-renal backgrounds who would benefit from our outstanding training.
This is a full time role working 150 hours over a 4 week period or about 37.5 hours per week. Days are Monday to Saturday and covering various shifts between 6.30am to 11.30pm.

That’s why we offer competitive salaries, excellent training and exceptional career prospects. Once through your probation you will have access to professional development. We’re a growing and ambitious company, so there is huge potential here to develop with us and enjoy fantastic rewards in your career.
