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.


The RNOH has been at the forefront of medical progress and innovation since it was founded and we continue to build on these traditions and have a reputation for clinical, teaching and research excellence. We are very proud of the services we provide and the high standard of care we deliver.

We are excited to be able to recruit additional trained nurses, fulltime/part time to support our current bed base and join our fantastic team. We provide a friendly and supportive environment for staff students and patients. You will become part of a dynamic development and help shape the service, and enjoy substantial professional development opportunities to achieve excellence in care for which we offer opportunities to complete a variety of courses. You might be a newly qualified nurse or a more experienced nurse working in another setting. Either way, you will be keen to work in an environment where you have a chance to build solid relationships with patients over a longer period of time and where the quality of care that you and your colleagues provide is your number one consideration. We are very proud of the services we provide and the high standard of care we deliver. We see it as our mission to train the next generation of nursing experts. If you would like to be one of them, then we’d like to hear from you.

This is a new role and you will be the first point of contact for children, young people and parents when they arrive to the unit for admission. You will be responsible for the provision of high quality nursing care for young people up to the age of 18. The unit includes 17 beds allocated to young people from 13 - 18. You will work in partnership with the young person and their family to provide holistic care and have regular liaison with the multi professional team to plan individualised care.
