Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH)

The hospital performs elective orthopaedic surgery in a suite of 10 operating theatres. The RNOH is a tertiary referral centre and much of this is highly specialised surgery and includes: revision joint replacement surgery, bone tumour surgery, paediatric orthopaedic surgery, peripheral nerve injury, spinal deformity and spinal injury with their associated difficult airway management problems. Fibreoptic intubations are taught with a dedicated camera and monitor. An intubating manikin is available. Many regional blocks are performed for intra and postoperative analgesia. In addition there is: an acute spinal injuries unit, a large non-acute pain service, an ITU with 6 beds to support the elective theatre workload and the spinal injuries unit and a 6-bedded HDU

The RNOH is situated in North West London on the A41 and next to junction 5 on the M1 motorway (exit only if travelling south). Ample parking is available on site. Access is also possible by underground: Stanmore (Jubilee) and Edgware (Northern). The bus service to the hospital is better from Edgware station.
