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.


A rare and exciting opportunity has arisen to become a Macmillan Recovery Package Project Manager at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital to improve patient experience for people affected by cancer and help deliver consistent, coordinated and sustained services. This will involve working in partnership with people affected by cancer and across organisational departments and boundaries within The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and partner care providers, Macmillan Cancer Support, primary and community care, social care and the voluntary sector. This post will lead and coordinate a programme of work to deliver the Cancer Recovery Package.  Building on work already undertaken, this ambitious programme will ensure that all patients identified will have access to the core elements of Macmillan’s Recovery Package and Stratified Care Pathways, which include:

  • An offer of Holistic Needs Assessment and Care Plan,
  • An End of Treatment Summary
  • A Primary Care led Cancer Care Review
  • Patient initiated follow-up and remote monitoring
  • Access to Healthy Lifestyle advise and support via Health and Wellbeing event

The post holder will drive our LWBC Programme which aims to deliver a person-centred, holistic approach to patients to ensure they are informed and supported throughout their diagnostic, treatment and follow-up pathways, and able to take an active role in their recovery with a focus on self-management, sustained recovery, wellbeing and healthy lifestyles.

You will be fully supported within your role and there will be enormous opportunities for you to advance and develop your knowledge, skills and confidence when caring for patients with cancer. You will work autonomously as well as being a key team member in a supportive and collaborative multi-professional team – The London Sarcoma Service.
