At the East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust we are proud of the range of services we provide.
As we grow and promote better patient care in our new state of the art facilities, we are looking to expand our dedicated teams across our sites and satellite units.
A vacancy has arisen to join an established innovative team of nurses providing specialist nursing services to pre and post renal transplant recipients, their families and carers in liaison with the teams from all three of our provider transplant hospitals. We have a large live donor programme which you would be actively involved in. We have an average of 60 patients transplanted on an annual basis, up to 40% of which are from living related/unrelated donors.
We are a non-transplanting renal service covering a catchment population of 1.5 million across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Essex. The main renal unit, based in Stevenage supporting approximately 470 dialysis patients, has satellite units in St Albans, Luton, Bedford, Harlow and a rapidly expanding home dialysis program. We also collaborate closely with our renal liaison team to provide timely transplant co-ordination of our pre dialysis patient group. The West London Renal and Transplant Centre, Addenbrookes hospital and The Royal Free hospital provide transplantation to our patients. We provide post transplant follow up and support to approximately 280 patients and have plans to further develop a nurse led clinic within this group.
Applicants must have significant renal nursing experience demonstrating ability to work effectively in a small, highly productive team. Must demonstrate organisational, interpersonal and management skills particular to the care of pre and post transplant recipients. As a registered nurse and role model you will be working within a team of committed and hardworking nurses with a high level of professionalism. Part of your role will be to mentor and supervise others including students and to support your colleagues in delivering excellent quality patient centered care.
Our Trust continuously seeks to improve our renal service and is working towards foundation status.
The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
