The Renal department at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is keen to recruit talented nurses to join our friendly, supportive and dynamic team. Clinical areas include Langley Ward, the Jack Pryor dialysis unit, the Home Therapies Department and the Cromer and District Hospital satellite dialysis unit. Exciting new opportunities are on the horizon as we develop and enhance our existing team to prepare for the future vision of Nephrology both in the hospital and the community.
These rotational posts offer an exciting opportunity to work across the entire department furnishing you with the skills to become a fully qualified renal nurse. Previous experience is not required as you will have a robust programme of induction and will receive a comprehensive in-house training package. You can expect a period of supernumerary training and will be well supported by experienced staff and clinical educators. Subsequent study leave and continuous professional development is supported by the department.
Langley Ward is our 33 bedded inpatient nephrology ward providing experience of caring for patients with acute kidney injury, diabetes and a range of medical conditions. Acute dialysis and plasma exchange treatments are also carried out on the ward. The Ward is operational 24 hours per day, seven days per week. For more information, please contact Sarah Trudgill, Ward Manager on 01603 646639.
The Jack Pryor Dialysis Unit has 28 haemodialysis stations catering mainly for outpatients but does also treat some inpatients. Here, you will be trained to deliver haemodialysis therapy. The Unit is operational from 7:00am to 10:30pm, Monday to Saturday. For information, please contact Shahn Cullum, Senior Sister on 01603 288296.
The Home Therapies Department is based on the Jack Pryor Unit. The Team cares for patients who dialyse at home and so provides training in haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and patient education both in the hospital setting and in the community. For more information, please contact Len O’Driscoll, Sister on 01603 287070
The Cromer and District Hospital Satellite Dialysis Unit has nine dialysis stations catering for outpatients and is similarly operational to the Jack Pryor Unit.
The renal department also has a rich pool of Specialist Nurses providing further learning opportunities and support. We are an established yet forward thinking and developing department and we want you to come and work and be a part of our great team.
Hours of work: Langley ward works a full shift pattern of days, nights and weekends. The Jack Pryor Unit works from 7:00am to 10:30pm Monday to Saturday.
