An exciting opportunity has arisen for a senior clinical/post CCT fellowship in renal medicine and dialysis at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

The Department of Renal Medicine at Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI) is a regional centre for the investigation and treatment of renal disease, one of the leading centres for innovation and excellent nephrological care in the UK. It offers full spectrum treatment for renal disease including haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis and kidney transplantation. It's innovative acute kidney injury and home haemodialysis programmes are at the forefront not only in the UK but in Europe. Central Manchester University Hospitals is one of the largest tertiary hospitals in the country with a full range of specialties co-located on the central site, a key advantage in delivering timely specialist care, especially relevant to renal patients. There are also close ties with the Departments of Biochemistry, Immunology, Nuclear Medicine, Radiology and other specialties in the Trust and The Manchester University Medical School.

The renal department works closely with the Regional Transplantation Unit based within the MRI, the largest transplant programme in the UK. The department has developed in the past decade innovative models of care including daily consultant ward rounds and an excellent ambulatory care model that enables early diagnosis and treatment and prevents unnnecessary admissions. The department is currently udertaking an exciting transformation of its dialysis services that will deliver 21st century facilities, pathways and outcomes. There is an excellent team of SpRs, clinical fellows, SAS doctors and ANPs, supporting the consultants, with strong supervisory arrangements.

The department is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic doctor with a good experience of nephrology or who has completed renal training to join the team in delivering clinical care whilst developing clinical leadership skills and specialist dialysis knowledge. The post holder(s) will be exposed to inpatient and outpatient general nephrology including glomerular disease and vasculitis investigation and treatment, renal procedures such as kidney biopsies, insertion of permanent dialysis catheters and peritoneal dialysis catheters and general nephrology and acute kidney injury work. They will have the opportunity to strengthen their knowledge and skills in complex haemodialysis management and be guided in the development of management skills and service development. Whilst it is desirable to have candidates with nephrology experience, and even at post CCT level, those with general medicine experience at SpR grade seeking for nephrology exposure will be considered and the programme tailored to their needs.

The post is initially for six months, starting in September 2017, with a view to renewal following mutual satisfaction with progress. Initially, it not include oncall commitments but there will be opportunity to be involved in acute nephrology referrals and take part in the oncall service when a vacancy arises on the rota. For post CCt candidates, there will be opportunity to act up as consultant under the right supervision.

Please note that this post does not have educational approval from the Postgraduate Deanery, although full educational supervision will be provided by a designated consultant.
