Band 6 (Band 5 training post considered)


 Full or Part Time Hours considered


The Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Trust is a world leader in the diagnosis and management of heart, lung and related diseases.  The Trust works closely with the National Heart and Lung Institute, part of Imperial College.


Are you ready for a new challenge that will enable you to develop highly specialised skills with a small patient group where you can really make a difference?


An exciting opportunity has arisen within the newly formed Familial Hypercholesterolaemia (FH) and Lipid Management Service, for an enthusiastic and innovative nurse to join our team. The post will be primarily based in the Lipoprotein Apheresis department, however, there will be opportunities for future development within the speciality of FH and lipid management.


This clinical role will enable you to develop your skills in carrying out an exciting and rare treatment for patients with raised cholesterol levels as well as providing patient training and monitoring of novel lipid lowering treatments. The apheresis unit at Harefield Hospital is the largest in the country and has been in operation since 2000. The unit is a leader in promoting this dialysis therapy as well actively participating in research and development of new lipid lowering treatments.


The successful candidate will need to be highly self-motivated, be able to demonstrate advanced management, communication, interpersonal and organizational skills and be able to work autonomously as well as within the team. Cannulation skills, experience in dialysis and computer literacy would be advantageous. We will provide a full in-house training programme and study leave to help develop specialist skills.


This is a full time, band 6 post, but we would consider part time working and applications from ambitious band 5 nurses who want to expand their knowledge and skills.
