The Kidney unit at the Churchill Hospital comprises a 15-bed renal ward, 20-bed transplant ward, 6-bed day-case unit, 39 haemodialysis stations, and PD and specialist nursing teams. The OKU has five network units, which are based in High Wycombe, Stoke Mandeville, Swindon, Milton Keynes and Banbury.
Post 1: This post is largely based at Milton Keynes hospital, with one day per week in Oxford. The Milton Keynes Network renal unit cares for 85 haemodialysis patients, 22 patients on home therapies. There is a busy outpatients department, which runs both general nephrology and transplant follow up clinics. There is an element of ‘in reach’ that is delivered in this role, providing specialist renal advice to the medical and surgical teams at Milton Keynes hospital. You will work alongside another nephrologist who has a shared GIM/Renal post and a nephrologist who supports clinics once a week.
Post 2: This post is largely based at Great Western hospital with one day per week in Oxford. The Swindon Network Renal Unit cares for 70 haemodialysis patients, 17 patients on home therapies.

This is a 10PA post created with additional funding and will work alongside another consultant nephrologist based full time in Swindon.
Post 3: This is a reconfiguration following retirement of a Consultant Nephrologist. This post will be based in the Oxford Unit and have additional clinics in our about to expand Horton Dialysis Unit. The Horton Unit currently has 6 stations and is about to expand to 12. There is an opportunity to move activity to the North of County. There will be general nephrology and transplant outpatients as well as ‘on-call’ responsibilities (1:7) for the inpatient areas.
You would join a successful team of nine NHS consultants, and work alongside seven university staff and some staff jointly appointed posts at the network units.
These appointments are on a full time basis though job-share would be considered. Close links with the university mean that there may be opportunities to develop special interest if possible or to be involved in research. Candidates will be asked to rank their preference for post at interview.
