Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust is a large teaching hospital which provides a diverse range of services to the population of Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. The Trust is looking to recruit a Trust Grade Registrar (ST3-7 equivalent) in Renal Medicine. The post is available immediately, and will be a fixed term appointment until early February 2020.
You will join a well-established, forward thinking team that provides inpatient and outpatient nephrology and transplant services to the local population. This includes acute kidney injury, chronic dialysis services, and acute and chronic transplant services. We carry out around 75 adult renal transplants per year and we have over 1200 patients with ESRF, including 750 with transplants, under regular review.
The post holder will work alongside the other Speciality Registrars. There is no requirement to contribute to the department’s middle grade rota for non-resident on call, but there is likely to be scope to do additional out of hours work elsewhere within NUH.
This post is not recognised for specialist medical training purposes, but successful candidates will have access to the same local teaching opportunities and educational supervision as trainee colleagues. There may be an opportunity to learn practical procedures such as tunnelled dialysis catheter insertion and kidney biopsy. The posts are ideal for doctors wishing to gain further experience of the management of patients with renal problems and for those considering a future nephrology career in the UK but wishing to gain more experience prior to an application for a training post.
You must have appropriate UK professional registration. MRCP part 1, and a minimum of four years post graduate experience is essential, ideally including prior experience working in a Renal department.
