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.


The RNOH is a national centre of excellence with an international reputation for diagnosis, assessment and treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions. Treating over 10,000 inpatients from local, national and international referrals, the RNOH provides a comprehensive range of services unique within the NHS, ranging from acute spinal injuries, bone tumour and complex joint reconstruction, rheumatology, urology, scoliosis, metabolic disease to orthopaedic medicine and specialist rehabilitation. It also offers an integrated range of clinical, teaching and research services exceptional to the UK and in partnership with University College London.

The Trust currently has 220 inpatient beds, 13 wards and 8 operating theatres with the Stanmore site recently being redeveloped to include a new inpatient facility including adult and children’s inpatient wards with embedded therapy areas. The new state of the art facility reflects and enhances the medical excellence that the RNOH is renowned for. The RNOH pharmacy department is a friendly, close-knit team where everyone is willing to offer a helping hand. Our vision is for medicines optimisation to be delivered by patients’ bedsides. Our important role within the organisation is expanding and our Pharmacists and Technicians work within MDTs involved in pre-operative assessment medicine, spinal rehabilitation medicine, acute pain wards, chronic pain clinics, complex long-term bone and soft-tissue infection management as well as post-operative care and chronic disease management.
