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 enthusiastic and committed individual to work in the Clinical Health Psychology department, based at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore. This role includes outpatient psychological assessment and therapy and contributing towards the psychological component of our inpatient pain management programmes.

We are looking to recruit an HCPC-registered, clinical/health/counselling psychologist ideally with training or post-training experience within the area of physical health. This post involves working with people with chronic neuromuscular and musculoskeletal conditions providing highly specialist psychological assessment and therapeutic interventions and also providing advice and consultation on patients’ psychological care to members of the multidisciplinary team.

The Clinical Health Psychology department currently consists of two full-time and five part-time members of staff with backgrounds in Clinical, Health and Counselling Psychology. We offer a supportive and friendly environment and are able to provide excellent opportunities for CPD, supervision and peer supervision, and teaching and training of healthcare professionals aimed at developing innovative services of supporting health-related behaviour change.
