The Orthopaedic Institute through voluntary contributions, helps to fund research in a large number of specialist research centres and departments at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, which has contributed to the renowned worldwide reputation of the hospital.  It also supports the funding of educational facilities and activities.

Our research work is carried out by the Institute of Orthopaedics, the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital and the school of Postgraduate Medicine of Keele University, which all work in close collaboration.  The research work results in new and improved methods of treatment as well as additions to medical knowledge.

Since June last year, the Orthopaedic Institute has been able to provide funding of a quarter of a million pounds for research projects to be carried out at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital.  The funding provided for these projects has only been possible because of the donations received from patients, relatives, the general public and the charitable trusts and foundations, for which the Orthopaedic Institute is most grateful.  

We have several research projects that we require funding for and any assistance you are able to give will be gratefully received.  The areas that the research projects are covering are:

  • Arthritis and Rheumatology
  • Spinal Research
  • Cartilage and joint problems
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Carpal tunnel surgery
  • ORLAU (Orthotic Research and Locomotor Assessment Unit

We will ensure that your donation will be acknowledged, allocated to the specific area you choose to support, and used effectively.
