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 an IM&T Project Manager within the IM&T Programme Office. This is a dynamic role which involves the implementation, development or reconfiguration of IM&T systems along with associated changes to business processes in a highly complex IM&T environment. You will be key to helping the Trust to implement its Digital Strategy.

The successful post-holder will be expected to show considerable initiative in identifying solutions to business problems and in championing innovation and change within the Trust. You will work collaboratively with the IM&T Management team, General and Service Managers and other staff within the Trust together with independent contractors and other Health Organisations.

The post-holder will need to be educated with a higher education qualification in computer and/or management science or comparable professional/technical qualification and must have PRINCE II or equivalent qualification. You must demonstrate significant experience of managing multiple complex projects within a large organisation, preferably in an IT service related environment.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Responsibility for managing projects supporting the Trust’s Digital Strategy to time, quality and budget
  • Responsibility for helping to embed programme and project management disciplines within the IM&T Programme Office
  • Responsibility for delivery of innovation and change within the Trust through the implementation of projects that support the Trust’s Digital Strategy
  • Supporting and enhancing processes, policies and procedures within IM&T
