The Nephrology Department at Christchurch Hospital provides regional nephrology services for people in Canterbury, South Canterbury, and Westland, comprising general nephrology, acute dialysis and chronic dialysis (CAPD and home haemodialysis). The department also provides Renal Transplant Services for people not only in Canterbury and Westland but also Otago and Southland.
The staff consist of four consultant nephrologists, two registrars, one house officer, dialysis manager, dialysis technicians, dialysis nurses, secretaries, and a computer systems manager. We also have a renal transplant recipient co-ordinator, predialysis educator, research/clinic nurse, and administrative officer.
The registrar posts are suitable for advanced training in nephrology under the auspices of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians.
An additional bonus for staff considering working in Christchurch is the wide range of outdoor pursuits. Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island of New Zealand.
