Central Manchester University Hospitals is a leading NHS healthcare provider of tertiary, secondary and community care services. The Manchester Royal Infirmary under Central Manchester Foundation Trust has a very successful clinical record in managing patients with complex kidney and pancreas transplantation, Acute Kidney Injury, Glomerulonephritis as well as Dialysis.

We are looking for an energetic, dynamic, enthusiastic candidate to join the transplant department and help in delivering the best renal care to its patients. The post provides a good balance of both acute transplant inpatient and outpatient care. Inpatient work would involve daily ward rounds on the transplant wards and outlying patients at MRI with both renal and surgical colleagues. There is a strong team, consisting of foundation doctors, renal specialist trainees, transplant surgical fellows advance nurse practitioners to support inpatient work. Being a large teaching hospital, this obviously comes with teaching responsibilities, both formalized sessions and bed-side teaching to junior colleagues.

This post is initially for one year but can be extended for a further year depending on the needs and progress of the appointed candidate. The Fellowship is primarily for post-CCT trainees but trainee nephrologists in the final stages of their training, pre CCT will be also welcome to apply. The post is 80% clinical and 20% research/other training. Previous post CCT fellows have gone on to develop successful careers in transplantation medicine.

This current job has no on call commitments planned at the time of advertisement, opportunities may arise to do on calls on the renal middle grade rota and where appropriate the candidate will be supported to act up as a consultant
