Abstract

The steady expansion of nursing roles is enabling staff to perform tasks traditionally undertaken by doctors. This change is perceived as being in the interests of patients, particularly because it can reduce waiting times, but it can also increase job satisfaction and enhance opportunities for the recruitment and retention of staff. This article describes the establishment of a nurse-led service for tunnelled central venous catheter insertion for renal dialysis. The result of a retrospective audit describes what impact this service has had.
