Renal nursing recruitment open day
We are excited to be hosting an open day for nurses considering a career in the renal specialty on Tuesday 10 December 2019, from 09.00 to 13.00
Imperial College Renal and Transplant Centre, based at Hammersmith Hospital, is the largest facility in Western Europe for nephrology, dialysis and transplantation, offering unrivalled patient care. Our ultimate goal is to provide clinical excellence and to work as a team in our endeavour to achieve the best possible care for our patients. Our kidney and transplant service is a regional renal (kidney) and transplant medicine centre, looking after over 3,500 patients on renal replacement therapy and performing an average of 170 kidney transplants a year.
We provide clinical expertise in renal care for adult patients in all stages of their illness, from acute kidney injury to patients with established renal failure requiring different forms of renal replacement therapies such as peritoneal dialysis, haemodialysis and transplantation.
If you join the specialty, you will receive in-depth training to develop or extend your skills in the management and care of renal patients. These include in the care of renal patients:
- care of patients with acute kidney injury
- care of patients with established renal failure
- care of patients undergoing haemodialysis
- care of patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis
- care of patient undergoing kidney and pancreas transplantation
- care of patient requiring conservative and end of life care
- care of renal patients with other related problems such as cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, diabetesand vascular complications

There are also eight satellite haemodialysis units across west London, north west London and west Hertfordshire, looking after over 1,500 patients on maintenance haemodialysis.
As a nurse with us, you will have the opportunity to develop your knowledge, skills and clinical expertise in a supportive environment. We are committed to continuing professional development and there are many educational and training opportunities to help build your career in renal nursing. There is a dedicated renal education team to help provide you with the education and clinical support you require.
Previous experience in a renal setting is not a requirement. We welcome applications from those working in other acute specialties and from newly qualified nurses or those seeking part-time employment. On appointment you will join our world-leading Renal and Transplant Centre. Hammersmith Hospital is one of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust’s five leading hospitals with career pathways that are full of opportunity.
On the day there will be refreshments, opportunities to meet the team, guided tours, interviews and we will be making job offers.
