The new issue of Reflexions, the RNOH patient magazine, is now available to read. Reflexions is written for patients and much of the content is patient generated. We publish the magazine four times a year and hard copies are available in the hospital at our Stanmore and Bolsover Street sites.

We have produced a new patient information film about our Peripheral Nerve Injury (PNI) unit. The video was the result of close collaboration within the unit, with consultant surgeons, therapists and nursing colleagues working closely with patients to develop the script and content.
An aerial view of the new RNOH inpatient ward block recently taken by a drone. As you can see, the new build is really coming on and due to complete by this time next year. Our thanks to Balfour Beatty Construction.
A huge congratulation to Ivana Trhlikova - Staff Nurse, our Employee of the Month for June!
Ivana was nominated by one of her patients as someone who stood out amongst “all the amazing staff on the Duke of Gloucester ward”. Her “willingness to go the extra mile, enthusiasm, energy (on a night shift no less!) and kindness were second to none”.
Well done, Ivana. We can’t wait to see you wearing your “RNOH VAL-YOU” badge with pride.
The latest issue of the RNOH magazine Articulate is now available to view or download. Inside you'll find articles on redevelopment news – a major milestone in the construction of the new inpatient ward block was reached last month when the ‘topping out’ ceremony took place. Our first "sandpit" event with UCL brought together our clinicians, scientists and engineers to tackle clinical problems and come up with solutions.
During her visit, Princess Eugenie was given a tour of the new wing, and talked to many of the Centre’s patients. She learned how they sustained their injuries, and the ways in which the SCIC has helped them to recover, and to regain their independence.
