The people we treat at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital inspire us everyday with their strength and bravery.  Read a selection of their stories here.

John Sheldon – Sarcoma

John is a patient here at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and recently had a sarcoma removed from his shoulder.

Nigel Webber – Sarcoma

Nigel was treated at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital after finding a lump in his right upper arm. 

Lynda Langan – Chordoma

Lynda Langan was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer after a fall from her horse. She decided to donate to The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Charitable Fund after “a wonderful experience of care”.

Natasha Paczkowski – Myxoininflammatory Fibroblastic Sarcoma

“I don’t think I would have gotten through it without the wonderful staff at ROH making sure I feel supported and reassured through the whole process.”

Richard Beechey – Liposarcoma

“The care I received over the 10 days that followed was just amazing, and aided my recovery greatly. I was attended to by incredibly caring nursing staff, and quickly regained my appetite and strength.”

Peter Lloyd – Osteosarcoma

“I cannot fault the care I have been given, I’m eternally grateful for all of the expertise from everyone at ROH. Without you I wouldn’t be here.”

Chelsea Butler – Hip Dysplasia

“The care I have received from the Young Adult Hip Department has been outstanding and I believe they deserve recognition for the amazing work they do.”

Kaddy Benyon – Biopsy Story

“I was a long way from home and unable to have visitors for the duration of my week-long stay. It was a frightening time but would have been more so had I not been cared for by such compassionate, intuitive, playful and encouraging NHS staff”
