About the

ORTHOPAEDIC INSTITUTE

The Orthopaedic Institute Limited 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 (RJAH) 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 Dr Robin Butler, considers new projects and studies proposed by research staff and clinicians. Following peer review, Dr Butler recommends to the Executive Committee the projects to be funded. Funding is provided from the donations received from patients, family and friends, Grant Giving Foundations and Charities for which we are extremely grateful.

The research has been undertaken by the Research Departments, Institute of Orthopaedics, RJAH Hospital and the Institute for Science and Technology in Medicine (ISTM) of Keele University, which all work in close collaboration.
Funding is provided by the Orthopaedic Institute Ltd, RJAH and external organisations.

Research staff employed on the projects are either supported by the Orthopaedic Institute Ltd 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 as well as additions to medical knowledge.
