The RNHRD and Brownsword Therapies Centre

RNHRD and Brownsword Therapies Centre

The RNHRD and Brownsword Therapies Centre opened in September 2019. Located close to the main entrance of the RUH, it is 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.

The Centre brings together many of the services previously located at RUH North, and the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases (known locally as the Mineral Water Hospital or the 'Min') including rheumatology, therapies and pain management. Designed in conjunction with staff and patients, the Centre includes clinic and treatment rooms, a gym, hydrotherapy pool, an assessment and teaching kitchen, bathroom and bedroom, a skype clinic room and education rooms for forums and classes.

The Centre includes artworks and artefacts from the Min, as well as modern specially commissioned work which celebrates Bath's connection to the thermal healing waters, the landscape, and Bath's medical history. You can find out more here:
