HRH The Duke of York, Patron of the RNOH, visited us this week. HRH has been a dedicated supporter of the RNOH ever since his daughter, Princess Eugenie, underwent surgery on her spine to correct scoliosis (curvature of the spine) back in 2002. Since then, both the Duke and Princess Eugenie have lent their efforts in support of several campaigns to improve and update facilities at our hospital.
A new local digital roadmap has been developed by 22 partner organisations and the North East London Commissioning Support Unit across NCL (North Central London).
Made up of clinical commissioning groups, local authorities and NHS providers, the plan agrees how we can implement digital services to manage the health and wellbeing of the NCL population and move from paper-based to digitally enabled care processes within our health and care organisations.
If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, such as a cough, cold, or temperature, please avoid visiting the hospital while you are feeling unwell. If you have an appointment, please call the department to notify them in advance.

For the first time, a ground-breaking medical innovation that helped the racehorse Dream Alliance to win the Welsh Grand National has been carried out successfully in humans.
After tearing a leg muscle in 2008, the champion thoroughbred was one of the first animals to have its tendinopathy treated using stem cells. The following year, Dream Alliance raced to victory at Chepstow before being retired in 2012.
