We have produced a new patient information video about the Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) treatment used at the RNOH to treat patients in whom chronic pain has significantly limited their daily lives. Working closely with real patients and clinical staff, the video outlines the advantages of the treatment and allows us to hear directly from patients about what positive impact SCS has on their lives.
A scientific paper authored by a team from the RNOH has been published by the Open Source British Medical Journal. This paper demonstrates for the first time in the UK, on a large scale, how NHS hospitals can capture a patient’s health status using tablet devices in a real clinical outpatient setting on more than 2500 patients.
The latest RNOH Quality Accounts are now available for 2015-2016. The Quality Account is an annual report about the quality of services provided by the RNOH and includes data on key measures such as patient safety, clinical effectiveness and patient experience. The Quality Account is an important way for us to report on quality and show improvements in the services we deliver to our patients.
Hundreds of supporters arrived at the RNOH Stanmore on Sunday 26th June to take part in the annual sponsored Buttercup Walk through the hospital grounds. Despite the skies looking stormy as Walk Hero Maria Mirto cut the opening ribbon, the weather held out and patients, staff, families (and dogs!) made the most of the rides and attractions.
