Biography

RG graduated in medicine in 1976.  After training in Manchester and London (Barts) he moved to Stevenage in 1988 to establish a new renal service.  RG was Clinical Director of Renal Services based at Lister covering the counties of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire for 20 years (88 to 08) and continues as a full-time clinical nephrologist in the NHS.

The Lister renal unit has a long history of innovation in dialysis and maintains a creditable output of original research and service development.  Research interests include home haemodialysis, non-dialytic conservative management and end-of-life issues.  He has a busy international schedule of lectures and attendances at advisory boards.

Dr Greenwood was the President of the British Renal Society from 1997 to 2000, served on the External Reference Group of the Renal National Service Framework from 2001 to 2004 and was a Chairman of the UK Kidney Alliance from 2003 to 2007.  Currently he is a member of the Dialysis Clinical Reference Group advising on the transfer of commissioning from the SCG Clusters to the NHS Commissioning Board.
