An exciting opportunity to join our diverse renal Outpatients Department (OPD) team has become available. The role involves hands-on work with patients in kidney failure and their families in the assessment, planning, support and review of care and treatment choices. The job description is varied and wide-ranging, shared with other staff. For this particular role the emphasis is on clinics, patient telephone support, and caseload management.

You will have opportunity to showcase and develop your renal skills and experience, creating individual care plans that fit patient need and help them make life-changing decisions for dialysis and treatment. You will have the interpersonal skills, competence, compassion and sensitivity to build positive and trusting relationship with patients and the multi-disciplinary team.

This will help you lead and support the nursing team caring for outpatients attending for nurse led clinics, walk-in assessments, patient education, and intravenous administration of infusions, drugs and blood. Frequently this may be at renal satellite locations in Worthing, Crawley, Bexhill and Eastbourne.
