Orthopaedic Institute Ltd
The Orthopaedic Institute Ltd founded in 1971, is a registered national charity and through voluntary contributions, helps to fund research in the specialist research centres and departments within the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in Oswestry, Shropshire. It also supports the funding of educational facilities and activities such as organising training courses for Orthopaedic Trainees and Allied Health Professionals.
The Executive Committee, under the Chairmanship of Dr Brian Ashton, decides the policy of the Institute and monitors its progress. A Research Panel, under the Chairmanship of Mr Andrew Clarke, considers new research projects proposed by research staff and clinicians, and recommends to the Executive Committee, the projects to be funded from the income provided by grants and donations received.
Research staff employed on the projects are either supported by the Orthopaedic Institute or are working within Departments of the Hospital or the School of Postgraduate Medicine, Keele University. Many programmes are interdisciplinary and involve staff from one or more departments.
The research work results in new and improved methods of treatment, improving quality of life, as well as additions to medical knowledge.
We are constantly looking for ways in which to raise funds to support the excellent work of the Orthopaedic Institute. Please visit our Fundraising Page for details of how you can help.
