RUH call to attend outpatient appointments

The Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust (RUH) is backing a call for patients not to miss their important outpatient appointments.

The Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group is reporting a rise in the number of missed appointments and warning that doing so could have serious implications for long-term health - read more.

The RUH Trust has made a short film encouraging patients to attend their appointment and reassuring them that procedures and measures are in place to keep them and our staff safe.

The film takes viewers on a journey from the hospital's front door to outpatient department, explaining how patients and visitors are advised on wearing a face covering or mask when inside the hospital, how to follow hand hygiene tips and how to self-distance by two metres in the hospital corridors and waiting areas.

The message to patients is – outpatient services at the RUH may look a bit different at the moment, but the care and service you receive is just the same.
