Relocation of RNHRD Services

RUH garden for patients with dementia

A programme of service specific engagement opportunities for the first few RNHRD services to relocate was launched in October 2015, and continued during 2017.

An approximate timetable for relocations which takes into account co-dependencies of services is outlined below.

Completed Engagement Activity

  • Engagement: October 2015-January 2016
  • Service relocated in Summer 2016

  • Engagement: October 2015-January 2016
  • Service will relocate in 2018 when adult Rheumatology Services & Clinical Measurement relocate

  • Engagement: April 2016
  • Service relocated June 2017

  • Engagement October 2016 – Jan 2017
  • Looking at these services together, as they are closely inter-linked
  • Review of feedback underway
  • Planning to relocate these services to a new, purpose built Rheumatology and Therapies Centre on the RUH's Combe Park site in 2018

  • Engagement June – September 2017

Engagement is taking place now at a point where feedback can influence the final design of the RNHRD and Therapies Centre. More information on the Trust's Estates Redevelopment plans is available here.

The final phase of engagement around relocating RNHRD services out of the Mineral Hospital building took place in 2017 and focused on:

  • Pain Services


Have your say

The RUH and the commissioners of the services currently provided at the RNHRD would like to hear your views about our proposals and we welcome your feedback at any stage.

There will also be a number of opportunities for you to provide your insights where and how best to deliver each service during the specific engagement activity for each of the service relocations.

Our overarching principles remain the same; wherever our services are located, we want to be able to continue to deliver the same high standards of care in the future.

If you would like to provide any feedback at this stage in the process please email:

We'll be updating these pages as the relocation process progresses, thank you for your interest.
