EON Survey Summary
On behalf of the EON committee and Renal Association, thank you to all who participated in the EON Survey. A summary of the results is posted below, and further details of the survey will be discussed in the EON session of the UKKW2019 meeting.
- 46/76 Units responded to the demographic survey
- Changing work force with more women and more LTFT
- Less migration from overseas in the current decade
Survey Monkey results
- Total 159 Responses
- Consultants make the main workforce. Total 28% of respondents were Non-White, of which 12% were overseas qualified. Most migration of overseas renal doctors occurred in 1990’s and 2000’s
- 20% respondents were Less Than Full Time (LTFT ) and the majority of them were women trainees
- 21% of respondents were not Renal Association members
- Over 80-90% of 159 respondents were satisfied in their jobs and enjoyed nephrology
- 61% practiced pure nephrology
- Barriers in career progression, bullying, voice being heard: the striking themes were female gender, carrying responsibility, mother, LTFT, overall lack of support to the women, highly concerned about gender pay gap and discrepancy in merit awards
- Ethnicity BAME: BAME women, particularly overseas trained, were the most disadvantaged
- Medical Students as future nephrologists – increased exposure as trainees and students was strongly recommended
