The building of the stunning new RNHRD & Therapies Centre is a part of a phased redevelopment programme at the Royal United Hospitals Bath (RUH).

Starting with a new Pathology building, followed by a new Pharmacy, the RNHRD & Therapies Centre, and completed with the new Cancer Centre by 2020/21. By developing in stages it will permit the hospital to maintain services to patients at all times whilst the site, and the way it works, undergoes substantial change.

Time scale

The new building will house many of the services currently located at the Mineral Hospital and in RUH North, namely rheumatology, therapies and pain management services under one roof. By creating a centralised, integrated and beautifully designed space for staff to work collaboratively, we plan to deliver a holistic and patient centred approach to care. The vision for the new Centre is to create a nurturing environment with dedicated specialist facilities for our patients. The building will include a large Hydrotherapy Pool, specialist Gym and rehabilitation equipment, and a Biologics Treatment space (the full list can be found here).

The Centre will be both functional in design and provide therapeutic surroundings to support patient recovery, treatment, wellbeing and the management of long-term conditions. The expertise and international reputation of the RNHRD will combine with a local reputation for excellent care, leading to the provision of a unique facility at District General Hospital level.
