The RNOH Appeal is delighted to announce that Paralympic rowing gold medallist and five Times world champion Naomi Riches MBE has agreed to become an official Ambassador for the charity, supporting the hospital’s efforts to raise £15 million for new state of the art equipment and facilities at the hospital site in Stanmore, Middlesex.
Naomi said of her decision to become an ambassador, ‘The RNOH has been in my life since I was young, as my dad used to be a patient and now my mum works in the Physio department. Having the opportunity to give something back to help with the fundraising efforts is very exciting for me; it was an honour to be asked.’

The RNOH features in part four of the current BBC2 series, Keeping Britain Alive: The NHS in a Day. The episode follows former patient Steven Briggs through intensive rehabilitation from Dr Jan Gawronski and his specialist team at the RNOH’s Spinal Cord Injury Centre, one of only 11 in the UK designated to receive and treat spinal cord injured patients.
Despite being paralysed from the neck down, Steven is thankful for the expert care he received at the RNOH and for the continued support from his friends and family: “I was given incredible care and support from the nurses, the carers and my loved ones. Dr Gawronski and his team have helped me understand my condition, enabling me to regain a sense of independence.”
RNOH is the largest orthopaedic hospital in the UK and regarded as a leader in the field of orthopaedics both in the UK and world-wide. We provide a comprehensive and unique range of neuro-musculoskeletal healthcare, ranging from acute spinal injuries to orthopaedic medicine and specialist rehabilitation for chronic back sufferers.
RNOH also plays a major role in teaching. Over 20% of all UK orthopaedic surgeons receive training at the RNOH. Our patients benefit from a team of highly specialised consultants, many of whom are nationally and internationally recognised for their expertise.
We enhance our clinical effectiveness by working in partnership with University College London and in particular UCL’s Institute of Orthopaedic and Musculoskeletal Science, based on the Stanmore campus. The IOMS, together with the RNOH, has a long track record of innovative research leading to new devices and treatments for some of the most complex orthopaedic and musculoskeletal conditions.
