Clinical services


We're planning to relocate these services, currently provided from the Mineral Water Hospital site, to a purpose built RNHRD and Therapies Centre on the RUH's Combe Park site in 2019. The new Centre will bring together a number of outpatient services from the RUH and RNHRD which support patients to live independently in the community. Patients will continue to be seen and treated by the same team, only the location will change. Peripheral clinics will continue in the same location. Please see here for more information.
