RNOH Quality Account 2018/19 - have your say

What do high-quality services mean to you?

Every year, all NHS organisations are required to produce Quality Accounts. This important document sets out how we continue to improve the quality of care and services that we provide.

Our Quality Account should give patients, the public, and other stakeholders including local commissioners, enough information to understand:

The London Spinal Cord Injury Centre needs keen gardeners

The LSCIC garden needs you

The London Spinal Cord Injury Centre (LSCIC) at the RNOH is one of only 11 in the UK designated to receive and treat spinal cord injured patients. The Centre currently has 40 beds for adults, children and young people.

Volunteer Services are looking to form a group of gardening volunteers to help manage the Therapeutic garden, along with the current volunteers, Darren and Tristan. Many of our long-term patients and their visitors enjoy spending some time off the ward, and the gardens provide a valuable relaxing environment.

XLH (X-linked hypophosphatemia) Patient and Family Meeting

On Thursday 15th February The RNOH welcomes you to this event to share your experiences and ideas around XLH (X-linked hypophosphatemia), a genetic disorder that affects about one in 20,000 people. XLH is characterized by low levels of phosphate in the blood. Phosphate levels are low because phosphate is abnormally processed in the kidneys, which causes a loss of phosphate in the urine (phosphate wasting) and leads to soft, weak bones.

The location is the Village Hotel, Centennial Park, Elstree WD6 3SB


Stop the spread of flu and norovirus

To help protect our patients and staff from flu virus and norovirus, do not come into the hospital if you are feeling unwell and experiencing flu-like symptoms, diarrhoea or vomiting.

How you can help us if you are not well:

Do not visit the hospital until you have been free of symptoms for 48 hours

If you have an appointment or it is essential to visit a friend or relative, speak to the ward sister or manager prior to your visit.

Wash and dry your hands, making use of the alcohol sanitisers located across the hospital.
