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 to work at one of the UK’s leading specialist orthopaedic hospital which has an international profile for outstanding patient care, research and education.

Applications are invited for SHO (F2 and above) positions offered for candidates to provide direct medical care to acute and elective patients at our nationally recognized center of excellence. Variable start dates and contract lengths are available to suit your training plans.

The Stanmore site (Greater London, accessible on either the Jubilee line or Northern line) provides trainees and trust doctors with exposure to a range of specialist orthopaedic practices and complex surgeries to give hands on experience and a wide exposure to current techniques in trauma and orthopaedic surgery.

Our teaching and clinical effectiveness are enhanced by our work in research and development and academic links with University College, London. On-site educational programmes, simulation surgery and research/publication opportunities are also available. This opportunity is ideally suited to those looking to enhance their portfolio for career progression in orthopaedics. Furthermore, the Trust has a strong research and audit focus and post holders are actively encouraged to participate in Audit/QIP.

The post holder will have Consultant-led education and supervision and will be supported in their professional development, clinical appraisals and revalidation. Deanery equivalent study budget and study leave are also included.

We offer our staff numerous benefits to include a car leasing scheme, on-site accommodation, a multi-professional library, subsidized gym membership and childcare vouchers to name a few.
