The Royal Liverpool University Hospital was opened in 1978 and is the main teaching hospital in the Mersey Region for the University of Liverpool and merged with Broadgreen Hospital in 1995. The new hospital at the present site is scheduled to be opened in summer of 2018. The development of an adjacent biomedical campus is near its completion.

Currently the Trust contains over 700 beds and provides a comprehensive variety of clinical services in most of the main medical and surgical specialities. Many of these departments in addition to offering a district general hospital service to the local community also provide a service of tertiary referral both within and outside the Mersey Region. There are close ties with the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Liverpool. The clinical academic departments of the Faculty are on the same site as the hospital.

The appointment in its sessional allocation recognises commitment to general nephrology, pre-dialysis, peritoneal dialysis, haemodialysis and post-transplant patient reviews and any future developments. The appointee will join a team of 12 Consultant Nephrologists and Physicians.

The Royal Liverpool University Hospital Renal Unit supports over 460 dialysis patients including 60 PD patients and just under 1000 transplant patients. Approximately 100 new transplants are performed annually and the Transplant Unit has an active laparoscopic live donor programme and an ABO incompatible programme. At the Royal Liverpool University Hospital there is a Renal High Dependency Unit (five beds), a CAPD/APD unit (four beds) and 23 inpatient beds for both general nephrology and in support of the dialysis population. There is a well designed new day case / short stay nephrology ward and an 8 bedded renal transplant admissions unit. Our home haemodialysis programme has grown considerably over the years and at present we have 45 patients on the programme. All aspects of investigational nephrology are catered for with onsite histopathology, urology and interventional radiology. There are excellent links with the University Department of Medicine where a successful nephrology clinical research programme is based.

We require an enthusiastic colleague who has the necessary skills to help develop care of patients with kidney transplant and other immunological diseases affecting kidneys. It is a requirement for the successful candidate to have completed specialist training in Nephrology and General Internal Medicine (or equivalent training) and to be entered onto the GMC Specialist Registrar for Renal Medicine and General Medicine or be eligible to be listed within six months of interview.
