New charity role for Princess Eugenie

Princess Eugenie Patron of the hospital

Princess Eugenie is embarking on a new role as Patron of a charitable appeal to raise £15 million for the world-class, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH), which saved her from a disfiguring back condition, it was announced yesterday (Thursday)

Speaking at the official launch of the RNOH Redevelopment Appeal, Princess Eugenie said she was delighted and proud to accept the patronage, her first, following a successful operation to treat scoliosis at the hospital when she was 12.

“I am living proof that the hospital can and does transform lives. Without the care I received at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital I wouldn’t look the way I do now; my back would be hunched over,” she told guests, including racing driver Damon Hill at the St. James’s Palace launch.

Public exhibition held to discuss planning application proposals

Background to the proposals

More than 150 people have attended a two-day public exhibition to discuss the RNOH’s proposals for a planning application.

The planning application, which will be in the form of a masterplan, aims to replace the outline planning application as it no longer secures the best outcome for the Trust.

The public exhibition will be held in the RNOH’s Sir Herbert Seddon Teaching Centre on Friday 20 April from 14:00 – 19:00 and Saturday 21 April from 10:00 – 14:00.

The planning application, which will be in the form of a masterplan, aims to replace the outline planning application as it no longer secures the best outcome for the Trust.
