Founded in partnership with NIDMS* and One Dance UK


The revamped NHS Dance Injury Clinic at RNOH was launched in late 2023 and treats injured dancers and performing artists of all ages across the spectrum, ranging from amateur to professional.

This multi-disciplinary medical clinic is led by Dr Rick Seah, Consultant in Sport, Exercise & Musculoskeletal Medicine at RNOH. Dancers will be assessed within the hospital’s Sport, Exercise & Musculoskeletal Medicine (SEMM) Service.

Expertise available within the Trust include highly experienced musculoskeletal adult and paediatric physiotherapists, other allied health professionals, radiologists, physicians and orthopaedic surgeons.

Any dancers or performing artists with the following issues can be referred to the Stanmore NHS Dance Injury Clinic by their NHS GP:

  • Acute or chronic musculoskeletal symptoms (soft tissue injuries and non-inflammatory conditions).
  • Symptoms which prevent or restrict an individual’s ability to participate in dance.
  • Dancers seeking  advice on return to dance  following injury or illness.

As good practice, we encourage dancers to involve their dance school, university or company to help us guide and empower the dancers and their support network with knowledge to safely return to dance.

London, Hertfordshire and the surrounding areas have a large and vibrant dance community.
