We provide a range of dialysis therapies including hospital based haemodialysis, automated peritoneal dialysis, continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis and home haemodialysis.

We are recruiting experienced Staff Nurses, with recent experience of medical nursing in a hospital setting for our Renal Ward, who have a genuine interest in developing their skills in this exciting specialty.

We always put patients first, and believe that creating a positive working environment, where staff feel valued, supported and empowered, will enable us to achieve this for every patient, every time. We expect every single member of staff to treat patients, families and colleagues with care and compassion, and to work together to achieve the very best outcomes. As an organisation we believe that every staff member plays a vital role in the delivery of excellent care with compassion, we are proud of our hospitals, and of the quality of care we provide for our patients, and that makes this a great place to work.
