The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust (RNOH) is the largest orthopaedic hospital in the UK, and is regarded as a leader in the field of orthopaedics both in the UK and world-wide.

The RNOH provides a comprehensive range of neuro-musculoskeletal health care, ranging from the most acute spinal injury or complex bone tumour to orthopaedic medicine and specialist rehabilitation for chronic back pain sufferers. This broad range of services is unique within the NHS.

As a national centre of excellence, the RNOH treats patients from across the country, many of whom have been referred by other hospital consultants for second opinions or for treatment of complex or rare conditions. 

Patients benefit from a team of highly specialised consultants, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognised for their expertise and experience. Consultants are supported in their work by nurses, therapists and other specialist clinical staff who are trained and are experts in their particular fields of orthopaedic care. 

The RNOH plays a major role in teaching, 20% of all UK orthopaedic surgeons receive training here. Our teaching and clinical effectiveness are enhanced by our work in research and development and our academic links with University College, London. Research departments at Stanmore include the Institute of Orthopaedics, the Centre for Disability Research and Innovation, the Institute of Human Performance and the Centre for Biomedical Engineering.

The RNOH works closely with other hospitals and trusts, with whom we have joint appointments to ensure maximum availability of specialist skills for patients. Our patients benefit from access to Aspire Leisure Centre which is located on site and hosts first-class facilities for able-bodied and disabled people.


An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Band 6 Clinical Nurse Facilitator to work with our newly qualified nurses and pre-registration students on the Adult Surgical Wards 

We are seeking to appoint an experienced and highly motivated nurse who can work autonomously, be flexible in their approach and have excellent organisational and leadership skills. 

About you:  

You will be joining the team in our Adult Surgical Wards working alongside the Clinical Nurse Educator and Ward Manager to support the development of students and staff new to the Ward.

As a facilitator you will be required to promote a learning environment which optimizes the clinical development of all nurses. You will also be involved in participatory learning: forums, workshops, action learning.

Working clinically alongside staff, you will facilitate them in learning new skills, taking on new roles and responsibilities by undertaking an assessment of their clinical competence when taking on these new skills and providing feedback.

As a minimum, you need to be a registered nurse who demonstrates proficiency in orthopaedic nursing care and a teaching qualification (SLICE, ENB 998, Mentorship etc)

The role is challenging, but rewarding and requires the individual to act as a role model at all times, motivating and supporting staff in their professional development

Candidates will be required to deliver a 10 minute presentation as part of the interview process on the following topic:

‘How would you as a facilitator contribute to a safe working environment?’
