This is an exciting opportunity for a Senior Clinical Fellows to join the UK's busiest Renal Transplantation Centre. We carry out almost 300 living donor and deceased donor Kidney Transplants a year and are one of the few centres who carry out simultaneous pancreas and kidney transplants.

We are looking for the successful candidates to be able to join us as soon as possible. You will be part of a team of 16 Junior/Senior Clinical Fellows working with 12 Substantive Consultant Surgeons. The Transplant team works alongside the Nephrology team and therefore will work closely with Nephrology Junior Doctors and Consultants.

Main duties of the job

The Department is one of the largest in the UK, providing kidney care to South East London, Kent and the Channel Islands. We also receive a significant number of complex referrals from a wider geographical area.

We perform almost 300 transplants each year, have the largest living kidney donor programme in the country and are a supra-regional centre for both combined kidney/pancreas and pancreas alone transplantation. We have the country's largest antibody incompatible transplant programme. We performed the first robotic transplants in the UK and have world-class expertise in vascular access and transplant urology.

We are nationally recognised for quality of care, innovation in clinical practice and service delivery, and for our close functional and geographical integration with the research programmes of both the MRC Transplantation Centre and the Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre.
