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.

Calling all B5 nurses.

SCIC has recently expanded from 24 beds to 30 beds and offers great opportunities to work with new team members along side existing experienced MDT team members.

Our patients are admitted from the acute stage of injury, where their journey begins often at a major trauma centre. As a spinal injury nurse you will be involved with the MDT, in facilitating goal planning meetings, case conferences to enable safe discharges.

  • In house training and degree level study (up to Masters level).
  • Health coaching to build your ability to problem solve and build your confidence in your nursing career while enabling your patients to move forward in their rehabilitation too.
  • Flexible working patterns, and also the opportunity to internally rotate to other wards on the rotation program.
  • Relocation packages (for those who meet the criteria)
  • Enhance your skills further in Spinal Cord Injury specialism and offer you orthopaedic spinal surgery, sarcoma experience and opportunities to work on our Private care facility .
