6 reviews of Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in English
It's on the edge of North West London/Hertfordshire borders. Nice scenic area with clean air to recover in for inpatients. The rheumatology department is great with courteous, helpful staff inc doctors, nurses, radiographers and porters. If you have an orthapaedic problem; go here and don't waste time with other hospitals that deal with anything and everything. It is world class! Theres no emergency department so you will need a referral from your G.P
Free parking too, not like other London hospitals that like to rip off sick people. Sometimes difficult to find a space, but if you have a blue badge your chances are increased and you dont have to climb the hill. The best in their field. If you go by public transport, Its set quite a bit away from Stanmore Station on the Jubilee line, but the hospital operate a free bus service or you can take a cab.
I reccomend the cafe in the building opposite the main outpatients to have a drink and a bit to eat. Its very reasonably priced and there are tables. Additionally, you're supporting the hospital. The kiosk in the outpatients is more expensive and no tables.
The way she is treated by this hospital is inhuman.
There is something wrong with this hospital on top it looks good but is rotten to the core.

Review – Complaint
Firstly a BIG thankyou to Professor Briggs who performed the operation, a real beacon.
Usually wait 2-3 hours over allotted time in out patients. Staff at Out patients very unhelpful.
Had operation. No food for over 24 hours.
Water never offered.
ID bracelet applied upon my request after several hours.
Hassle getting after care appointments.
Notes mixed up.
Received phone call following operation requesting that we needed an xray for an operation to have a leg amputated but actually had a lump removed from arm.
Complaints department very unhelpful. 3 Months without contact due to a backlog, apparently, to there being too many complaints.
Surgeons,doctors,physio`s and other proffesionals really are top of their field and I can`t fault them,
other general hospital staff or ward "helpers" range from excellent to really can`t be bothered and are obviously only there for the money!
I recently went for surgery and got nothing to eat for the first 24 hrs even though I had ordered food! not nice, but difficult to get angry when other staff are so helpfull.
Overall This is the best hospital for your body, but you wouldn`t go here on holiday!!
Leads the UK in Orthopaedic treatment, surgery and physiotherapy. Rural setting - quite restful, once you’ve made it up the hill. Free car parking, though it sometimes takes 15 minutes to actually find a free spot that isn’t staff reserved parking.
Four places to eat and drink for visitors, that I’ve found - Broccles, Spice Of Life (in the same building on the entrance road), the Friends Centre (near Outpatients) and Cafe Tazza (inside Outpatients). None spectacular, but all offer reasonable food and drink.
Outpatient staff were very friendly and helpful, and considerate. Nursing staff very considerate and, with the small experience that we’ve had of physio, skilled.
Good accessibility, as you’d expect. Take care when driving around, as there are quite a few wheelchairs zipping around (well, zipping down the hills and labouring up them).
