Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust

With sites in West London and Middlesex, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Trust is a leading trust in the field of orthopaedics.

The trust takes referrals from all over the country, usually for second opinions or to receive specialist treatment including for neuro-musculoskeletal healthcare, rehabilitation for chronic back pain, acute spinal injuries and complex bone tumors. Research and development are central to the ethos of the trust and as such, ideas for research and trials are encouraged from all medical professionals and not just doctors and surgeons.
