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

- 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.
Coxen Ward is a children and teenage unit where the philosophy revolves around the care and promotion of good nursing practice for children, young people and their families. The environment is unique, therapeutic and focuses on normality, offering patients aged 0-18 years the opportunity to develop and integrate with peers of different cultures and needs.
We cover a wide range of specialist orthopaedic conditions requiring both medical and surgical intervention, e.g. spinal deformities, spinal injuries, congenital abnormalities, bone tumours and peripheral nerve injuries.
You must have a keen interest in caring for children and teenagers and eager to work in an environment where you have a chance to build professional relationships with patients and their families. The quality of care that you and your colleagues provide is your number one consideration. Coxen Ward is a supportive, dynamic and progressive unit, which reflects the needs of children and young people.
