RNOH Charity seeks new Chair of Trustees

Posted by Vicky Brady on 17 February 2020

We are looking for an exceptional new Chair of Trustees to join the RNOH Charity Board. This is a unique and brilliant opportunity to help lead and develop the strategic direction of the Charity.  

The RNOH Charity is a vital partner in the way the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) delivers care. Since its inception in 1997, the RNOH Charity has received and administered millions of pounds’ worth of donations, which have funded numerous essential projects around the hospital.

The Charity's main purpose is to raise funds to help the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital provide world-class care for patients with musculoskeletal conditions, and to support the hospital's pioneering work in orthopaedic research and education. It strengthens the vital work of the RNOH on an on-going basis by funding extra services and facilities that are beyond the reach of the hospital’s NHS budget.

The Charity’s main focus over the last three years has been to fund major capital projects which support the redevelopment of the RNOH site in addition to helping the hospital deliver other key services. The Charity’s success is displayed in the new Stanmore Building, the Spinal Cord Injury Centre expansion, the volunteer and buggy service, an equipment library and pioneering research projects. These new facilities and services clearly showcase the significant contribution made by the Charity. During this period, the Charity has awarded grants amounting to over £5 million. In October 2016, the Charity became an independent organisation and subsequently appointed its first ever chief executive precisely two years later, in October 2018.This represented an important step change in the development and enterprise of the Charity.

This is an exciting time to join our Charity. We are looking for candidates who will offer strategic and supportive leadership to our highly effective, collaborative and committed Charity Board.
