The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital is the oldest orthopaedic institution in the UK. It was originally established in 1817 and was granted the title “The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital” by Queen Victoria in 1888. Its present site was donated in 1909 by George and Elizabeth Cadbury.
Since, The Cadbury Family remained close to the Royal Orthopeadic Hospital and supported the development and changes that the hospital has seen over the past 100 years. In the archive images section, you can find photographs of members from the Cadbury family supporting the hospital.
