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.
East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust provides long term Home Haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis for patients across a network that spans 5 sites including the parent unit situated at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage, with 4 satellite units covering Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and West Essex. The 5 units currently provide in-centre haemodialysis for approximately 500 patients and 78,500 sessions per annum.
In recent years there has been a growing recognition that self-care in the home either by haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis should be encouraged wherever possible to enhance health and quality of life prospects. There is also recognition that significant improvement in the experience of patients receiving ICHD can be gained by sharing tasks associated with their treatment with the nursing staff – so-called Shared Care. While still remaining in-centre, some patients can contribute significantly to their care and some can become wholly self-caring. The clinical service delivery model is therefore changing from traditional dependency towards patient training, empowerment and support to deliver care which is customised to patient choice, clinical need and ability.
This is an excellent opportunity within the Renal Department at East & North Hertfordshire NHS Trust. As we are seeking to recruit a motivated, collaborative, dynamic, innovative and experienced Nurse Team Manager to lead and continue to expand the provision of home haemodialysis and shared care services within its service portfolio.
The post holder must be renal trained, with a special interest in Home Haemodialysis and Shared care programme and significant experience in the delivery of high quality patient care with drive to deliver clinical practice effectiveness and sound workforce development in partnership with the renal management team.
Duties will include delivering on the renal units’ strategy which promotes, engages and successfully achieves self-care in 15 % of patients on RRT. Have commitment in achieving targets in numbers of patients on the Home Haemodialysis model of care through supporting education both in centre and in the outreach setting including in their place of residence (home/care home/prison/self-care area).
You must have appropriate UK professional registration.
