The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust is the largest orthopaedic hospital in the UK and a global leader in our field.  We provide a dynamic working environment where we support frontline staff to implement improvements so that we can realise our vision of being a world leading neuro musculoskeletal hospital providing the best patient care and staff experience in the NHS, delivering world leading research, and offering a strong foundation of education, training and career progression. Our dedicated staff come from diverse backgrounds, and our patients benefit from the wide range of experience they bring to the Trust. The RNOH brings unrivalled expertise together in one place allowing us to deliver some of the world’s most complex and innovative care to our patients

  • Rated Good by the CQC
  • Two sites, one in central London and one in Stanmore - which has recently opened The Stanmore Building, a new, state-of-the-art inpatient facility
  • Our Research and Innovation Centre works closely with our main academic partner, University College London
  • Recognised as a centre of excellence,  leading on national initiatives, such as the Getting It Right First Time (GIRFT) Programme
  • Further major redevelopment underway across the Stanmore site – improving and modernising our facilities to maintain our position as the UK’s leading centre for orthopaedic medicine
  • In the NHS staff survey, over 90% of our staff were satisfied with the quality of care they are able to give to patients - the best result of any NHS Trust in the country
  • Our staff also indicated that they had the best experience of appraisals as compared to all other NHS Trusts.

This is a great time to join us and play a critical role in the next stage of RNOH’s journey to achieving an outstanding CQC rating.

Our aim is to remain a world-leading orthopaedic hospital with the best patient care and staff experience in the NHS. To do this, we have four core values that underpin everything that we do. We use our values to help ensure that we are always focused on the things that our staff and patients believe are most important:

  • Patients first, always
  • Excellence, in all we do
  • Trust, honesty and respect, for each other
  • Equality, for all

Our annual staff survey results have been improving year on year, with our staff telling us that their experience of working at the Trust is getting better and better. They also indicate that our staff feel very loyal to the RNOH and committed to its role in providing the very best care to our complex patient group. We hope that we can welcome you to our growing team soon.

A very exciting opportunity has arisen for a Paediatric Nurse to work in our new Children’s High Dependency Unit and gain critical care skills.

The Alan Bray Unit/Children’s High Dependency Unit is a combined Intensive care unit/ high dependency unit, which cares for a wide range of critically ill adults and children with musculo-skeletal conditions pre and post operatively. These include complex spinal surgery, oncology, urology and peripheral nerve injuries. We are also linked to The National Spinal Cord Injury Centre and participate in acute rehabilitation programme.

We are looking for a Band 5 RSCN to join our well-established MDT providing high standards of care to patients and their families in our 16 bedded facility. We are willing to consider newly qualified candidates

A comprehensive competency programme is in place for new staff. We offer great educational and professional development pathways (including post-graduate critical care course and mentorship) and innovative and forward thinking in developments within critical care.

Applicants should be dedicated to providing a high standard of care; should have effective communication skills and work well as a member of a team. You will be expected to make an active contribution to the unit’s development as we enter an exciting period of expansion in the trust.

We are privileged at this trust to have free onsite parking for all patients and staff. There is also a free shuttle bus for staff and patients to the nearest tube station at Stanmore. Staff are also entitled to reduced membership at the Aspire Fitness and Leisure Centre.
