During this time he completed his PhD as a Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD Fellow at the MRC Clinical Sciences Centre, Imperial College.

Dr Hull’s outpatient work focuses on his specialist interest of autoimmune renal disease as well as general nephrology outpatients including chronic kidney disease (CKD), diabetic nephropathy and hypertension. He manages cohorts of haemodialysis patients at St George’s Hospital and in Kingston. Dr Hull is the Speciality Group Lead for Renal Disorders for the NIHR South Thames Clinical Research Network.

Dr Hull is able to offer consultations on all aspects of adult nephrology including acute and chronic kidney disease, proteinuria, nephrological causes of non-visible haematuria, hypertension (high blood pressure), renovascular disease, diabetic kidney disease, polycystic kidney disease and glomerulonephritis including nephrotic syndrome (minimal change disease, FSGS, membranous nephropathy), lupus nephritis, ANCA vasculitis and IgA nephropathy.
