We are looking for registered nurses to join our busy friendly team on the Nephrology and Transplant wards and Dialysis Unit. You will be responsible for delivering quality care to renal patients.  This will include patients with Chronic kidney disease prior to starting renal replacement therapy, patients on haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis and patients who have received a kidney or pancreas or combined Transplant.

You will be able to plan, implement and evaluate their care and treatment, and work closely with the multidisciplinary team. Existing dialysis skills are an advantage but full training will be given as required, it is more important to us that we recruit nursing staff who are keen to learn new skills, and who are able to work on their own initiative.  We need you to be motivated, enthusiastic and a team player, whilst ensuring you take a personal responsibility for the care delivered.

All staff actively participate in rotation from a base area through the other units & ward areas within the Directorate to gain a knowledge and understanding of the patient journey and to learn and share skills.
