RUH Redevelopment Plan
Building a new RNHRD and Therapies Centre
Our new RNHRD and Therapies Centre will be built close to the main entrance of the RUH, it will be an outpatient centre providing treatment, care and education for patients to recover from episodes of illness or injury, or to manage their long-term condition.
We will be the 'bridge' connecting and signposting patients to resources and support in the community to enable patients to manage their daily lives.
