Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital to boost private services

North London’s Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital is developing its services for private patients by teaming up with Spire Healthcare, the UK’s second largest private hospital provider.

A two year contract has been signed, which will see Spire work collaboratively with the Trust to improve existing private patient services and increase revenue – money that will be funnelled back for the benefit of RNOH services.

Parmjit Sandhu joins the RNOH from Spire Healthcare on a management consultancy basis to help review the private patient service and offering.  He said:

“We want patients to have fast access to one of the world’s leading orthopaedic specialist hospitals and be given a tailored, private service.

“The RNOH has state-of-the-art technology and the aim is to improve private patient access to these facilities so they can visit at a time that suits them, choose their own expert consultant and be treated in a clean and comfortable environment.”

RNOH is the largest orthopaedic hospital in the UK and regarded as a leader in the field of orthopaedics both in the UK and world-wide.

The hospital provides a comprehensive range of neuro-musculoskeletal healthcare, ranging from acute spinal injuries to orthopaedic medicine and specialist rehabilitation for chronic back sufferers. This broad range of neuro-musculoskeletal services is unique within the NHS.

Robert Hurd, Chief Executive at RNOH, says: “We’re pleased to be working with Spire Healthcare, who have a well established reputation. Income from development of the Private Patient Unit (PPU) will benefit services at the RNOH.”
