Why choose us?

Our hospital, based in the centre of Bath, has been treating patients from across the country since 1742.  

When considering the best place for your hospital treatment your priorities are likely to include the specialist treatment available, the expertise of our team and the quality of patient care.  At our hospital we pride ourselves on our high standards in each of these areas.  

We are part of the Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust. At the RNHRD, our key specialisms are rheumatology, chronic pain and chronic fatigue syndrome/ME.  These are areas in which we have an international or national reputation for our research and our treatment programmes. These strengths enable us to attract and retain highly specialist employees and we prioritise their continued training and development.

We pride ourselves on our high standards of patient care.  A multidisciplinary, holistic, patient-centred approach is common to all our treatment programmes. Supported by a clean and safe environment where the privacy and dignity of all patients is respected, we believe this ensures the best possible outcomes for patients. 

We have an excellent track record in infection prevention and control and we consistently meet national quality performance targets, have rigorous policies for infection control and score highly in surveys of patient satisfaction.
