Dear valued volunteers & supporters,

You will be aware that this is a testing time for our NHS here in Bath and we need your support now more than ever.

We are so grateful to all of our supporters – donors, fundraisers and volunteers – for all you do every day to help your local hospitals. The next weeks and months will see many of our usual events that you so generously support being postponed, however we know that so many of you want to continue, now more than ever, to make a difference – especially to help our amazing nurses, porters, doctors and all our hospital teams working tirelessly to care for our community.

To allow you to help in what feels like a helpless situation, you can help your local NHS in a number of ways through The Forever Friends Appeal to enable us to continue to be there for our hospitals, and our staff in whatever way they need.


During this time we will be providing updates via social media, our website and e-newsletters, if you would like to sign up to receive news and information about how you can support our work please click here.

If you have any questions about how to support the hospital or about your fundraising please email

Thank you for your patience and continued support

In line with government guidelines, all outpatients and visitors to the RUH are asked to wear a face covering. You may notice that staff are also wearing face masks.

If safe, inpatients can have one visitor a day for one hour. All visits must be booked with ward teams a day ahead. Read our visiting arrangementsPlease do not come to the hospital if you or someone you live with has coronavirus symptoms. Follow the self-isolation guidelines.

If you cannot attend an appointment, you can contact the RUH using this contact form or the number on your appointment letter.

The Forever Friends Appeal is the official charity of the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust

We fund projects that make a real difference to the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients cared for by the Royal United Hospitals Bath each year as well as the friends and family who visit them. Our fundraisers and donors make it possible for us to help pay for additional equipment, research and innovations, as well as finishing touches and ‘extras’ that complement the existing high quality care at the Hospitals.
