The RNOH Charity strengthens and supports the people, research and infrastructure that make the RNOH one of the world’s best orthopaedic hospitals.

Support us

Your valued contribution will go towards our vital work, strengthening and supporting the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital over and above standard NHS funding. As a national and international centre of excellence, the RNOH treats more than 150,000 patients annually of all ages with complex orthopaedic conditions, including spinal cord injuries, bone cancer, scoliosis, and acute hip and knee problems. Money you raise will be allocated to our most pressing need to help the RNOH provide the best patient care and help create a world-class facility.

If you would like further information about giving, organising or participating in sponsored events for the benefit of the RNOH, or any other aspect of fundraising, please visit RNOH Charity website or contact our fundraising office on 020 8909 5362.
