Review
Tertiary renal centre for all of East London, including transplants, therefore as you can imagine quite a busy job. You’ll cover mainly the transplant/surgical ward (for graft/access-related issues) and the gen neph ward (for dialysis/CKD/AKI), and also the HDU (fresh transplants/sick renal patients), and RAU (assessments/clerkings). You’ll definitely learn and see lots of interesting medicine and physiology, and naturally the registrars and consultants are rather clever and intellectual and teach you lots. The main downside as the only FY1 on the job (3 FY2s, 2-3 C/IMTs) was that I was often mollycoddled and sometimes felt patronised by certain seniors, especially as the department is very top-heavy.
