Research and Development

Moving to the RUH site in November 2019

We are currently located at the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases, Upper Borough Walls, Bath city centre.

Staff and services will move to the Wolfson Centre at the RUH. The Wolfson Centre is our research and improvement centre. The RUH has a long history of innovative research as well as supporting nationally organised studies. The Centre has been refurbished and extended to provide better facilities and a new home for the team relocating from the Mineral Water Hospital. There are more clinic rooms, a further research room, dedicated laboratory/freezer areas and office space for all the research teams. The Quality Improvement team and Designability are also based in the Wolfson Centre. The charity Bath Institute for Rheumatic Diseases will also move into the Wolfson Centre.

Bringing our teams together on one site will bring benefits and new opportunities for research and development.

You'll receive the same service, from the same team in an improved environment. If you are a patient on an ongoing programme of research, you will continue your trial in the Wolfson Centre, Zone D at the RUH.
