About Diaverum

Diaverum is a Swedish-born, multinational healthcare organisation that provides life-enhancing renal care to patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), empowering them to live fulfilling lives. As a global leader and the largest independent renal service provider in Europe, we care for around 40,000 patients across 440 clinics in 24 countries globally. Diaverum employs around 13,000 people worldwide and is headquartered in Malmö, Sweden. Diaverum currently operates over 30 kidney treatment centres across the UK. We work in close cooperation with NHS Main Renal Units, and deliver dialysis and associated renal services from our network of facilities across the country. As the leading independent renal service provider in the UK, we are fully focused on patient care, and our objectives are closely aligned with our NHS partners.

Our focus is providing haemodialysis for people with kidney failure (defined as when your kidneys are working at 15% or less than their usual capacity).

Our patients are those with kidney failure, often as a result of diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney inflammation, inherited conditions or in many cases, due to unknown causes.

Our nurse-led units employ not only specialist nurses, but also dialysis assistants, healthcare assistants, renal engineers, to deliver personalised care for patients.

Careers at Diaverum

Our people are our greatest asset. It is through them that we care for our patients, attract and retain top talent.

Most of our team members are nurses, as our centres are all nurse-led. They are experts in care and participate in the smooth running of the facilities, as well as exchanging ideas to improve care company wide.

Our renal nurses will specialise in a dynamic dialysis environment and build meaningful relationships with patients.

Our nurse-patient ratio is 1:4, which ensures our nurses have ample time to provide exceptional care to patients, including time to liaise with other professionals and plan care.

Nurses join us from many areas of nursing, and while clinical experience in renal care is welcomed, it is not essential to work for us, since we train our nurses comprehensively.

Healthcare assistants and dialysis assistants play a vital role following patient procedures, and are therefore offered training, e-learning and access to our in-house education program.

Our clinic managers are experienced and motivated nurses that ensure full clinical and operational management of the facility.

With their experience in haemodialysis being paramount to their role, nurses at Diaverum have many opportunities to progress their career to become clinic managers or take on other available alternative roles while at Diaverum.

Nursing careers at Diaverum

Diaverum nurses make up the bulk of the UK Diaverum workforce. Nurses are highly valued for their clinical expertise, but also their ability to build long lasting relationships with receivers of care.

Our NMC Registered General Nurses often come to us without renal setting experience, since we provide comprehensive training for all starters.

Nurses work autonomously and within a multi-disciplinary team. Developing and overseeing care plans, ensuring meticulous documentation of clinical activities, reviewing pre and post hemodialysis care and preparing machines and systems.

Building up a rapport with our receivers of care is just as important as the above responsibilities.

We have a diverse workforce, and can often offer support for international nurses wishing to join our team, including necessary guidance on obtaining a UK nursing qualification.

“I am grateful to Diaverum for their trust and confidence in me and for all the support in processing my return to the UK. To my managers at the Eastbourne clinic: thank you for believing in me and for helping me out the entire time. To my friends and colleagues, many thanks for the words of inspiration and for being my family in the UK.”
Shirley - Nurse

Careers for healthcare assistants at Diaverum

Our healthcare assistants play a vital role in improving the quality of life for renal patients.

Working under the supervision of a registered nurse, they maintain equipment, prepare treatment supplies, conduct health checks with patients, escort patients between clinical and waiting areas and are there to support patients in a helpful and friendly manner.

Healthcare assistants can join us with little experience, as full training is given, although a Minimum NVQ Level 2 in Health, Social Care or equivalent is usually expected, along with GCSEs.

Although many of our team have experience in a hospital or healthcare setting, a positive, dynamic and team orientated approach is a must, along with being a good communicator and being able to work independently and part of a team.

“The aim is to give student nurses exposure to the renal setting by providing them an excellent placement full of learning opportunities so they can see first-hand that renal is a fantastic speciality with exciting career pathways.

Donabelle Cabatas - staff nurse

Diaverum nursing jobs, care jobs, clinical & healthcare jobs and careers information by Nurses.co.uk

Donabelle shares why she loves being a renal nurse:

“When I first became a nurse, I thought I would be going to labour and delivery nursing, but then one of my family members got diagnosed with renal failure, so I thought it was my obligation to know more about renal disease. So I applied to become a renal nurse.

“I realise that in renal nursing, you get to bond with the patients, you get to generate long term relationships with them, you get to be more patient and understanding, it’s not A&E or the OR where patients just come and go. So here at Diaverum, we don’t just focus on renal care, we also treat people as people, and not just as patients.

“Learning here at Diaverum has never stopped, they always educate us to empower ourselves. Nursing for me is not just a job, it’s a vocation.”

Amy Ashmore - Project Manager

Amy outlines the development opportunities and career pathways available at Diaverum:

“Staff are nurtured and supported to grow from within. During my time here, Diaverum have funded additional training courses to help me progress in my career. The senior leadership team are open to having discussions around your role.

“There are different development pathways within the organisation for clinical staff. These add dimensions to one's job, provide variety in our jobs, develop staff and increase knowledge, functional skills and enhance our competencies.

“Diaverum has given me the opportunity to grow my skills and mould my career to my strengths; moving from Clinic Manager, to Health & Safety and now to Project Management.”
