Staff Nurse - Haemodialysis

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a dedicated and motivated Band 5 Staff Nurse to join our friendly team at the South Devon Satellite Kidney Unit, on the outskirts of Torquay. 

The South Devon Satellite Kidney Unit is a nurse-led outpatient dialysis unit, providing haemodialysis 6 days a week from 07:30-23:00hrs. 

We have a close working relationship with the wider renal team, based at the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital, collaborating with Nephrologists, dieticians, the dialysis access team and specialist nurses as required, to ensure the patients holistic needs are met.

Applicants are required to demonstrate excellent interpersonal skills and high standards of clinical practice as well as aspiring to improve services for patients.  You will be required to work collaboratively with dialysis unit staff and the wider renal multi-disciplinary team to assess, plan and implement haemodialysis treatment, participate in shift coordination, link nurse roles and supervision of unregistered staff.

Renal experience is not necessary as full haemodialysis training will be given, with new staff being supported by a dedicated Clinical Practice Facilitator.  Ongoing development is encouraged, with a variety of learning opportunities available throughout the renal service. 

The working pattern will be a mixture of early (07:30-18:30) or late (12:00-23:00) shifts worked Monday-Saturday.  The unit benefits from a free car park and is close to local bus routes.  We are closed on Sundays, Christmas Day and New Year's Day, with no overnight working required.

There is either a 1 x full time, or 2 x part time positions available.   

If you would like to find out more about the positions available or visit the unit for an informal discussion about what role entails, please contact Claire Wing (Clinical Nurse Manager) or Tony Wilcock (Charge Nurse) on 01392 405870.


Working Pattern: Shift pattern a mixture of Early shifts (07:30-18:30) and Late shifts (12:00-23:00) Monday-Saturday.  A full-time position would equate to 4 weeks of 4 shifts and 1 week of 3 shifts per 4-week roster period, a part time contract would be a lesser variation of this.

Interview Date: 11/01/23
