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 NHS Trust is the largest orthopaedic hospital in the UK and regarded as a leader in the field of orthopaedics both in the UK and world-wide. The Trust aims to be the specialist orthopaedic hospital of choice by providing outstanding patient care, research and education.

Treating over 18000 inpatients from local, national and international referrals (The Trust has 211 inpatient beds, 14 wards, 10 operating theatres), the RNOH provides a comprehensive range of neuro-musculoskeletal healthcare, ranging from acute spinal injuries to orthopaedic medicine and specialist rehabilitation for chronic back sufferers.

This broad range of neuro-musculoskeletal services is unique within the NHS. The Trust runs specialist clinics dealing with bone tumours, scoliosis, metabolic disease, rheumatology, urology, spinal injuries, specialist shoulder conditions and sports-related injuries.

The RNOH has one of the largest bone infection units in the UK and provides OPAT services to patients in over 60 CCGs in the UK, as well as abroad.

More recently the Trust has included specialist services such as paediatric rheumatology and paediatric endocrinology to expand its clinical portfolio.

Therefore the medicines optimisation agenda is challenging, varied, interesting and rewarding, and aims to have a clinical focus. To enable this, an opportunity has arisen for a forward thinking and highly motivated, team playing pharmacist to join the small friendly clinical pharmacy team at the RNOH. The post holder will join a team of specialist and generalist clinical pharmacists, medicines optimisation technicians and pharmacy assistants in delivering high quality, safe and effective pharmacy and medicines optimisation services to patients and service users. Our pharmacists work very closely with our clinicians in driving this medicines optimisation agenda forward. You will possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills, be able to work independently as well as part of a team, and be adept at working under pressure. As a clinical pharmacist, you will be assigned a tutor to complete your postgraduate diploma in clinical pharmacy.

There is huge scope for the successful applicant to develop on both a personal and professional level through exposure to all departmental activities.

Research and ongoing development is highly encouraged within the department and the Trust. We actively promote publication of research and involvement at external conferences; this includes regular submissions of posters and presentations at conferences nationally and internationally. Our department profile includes a recent UKCPA award-winning poster, presentations at European conferences, presentations at the UKCPA and Oxford Bone Infection Conferences as well as publishing in peer reviewed journals.
