New commencement

RNHRD & Therapies Centre - Bath

The Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases (RNHRD) (known locally as ‘The Min’) became part of the Royal United Hospital (RUH) on 1st February 2015.  It offers world class general and specialist services in a wide range of areas, from rheumatology to chronic pain and chronic fatigue management / ME to patients.  In order to ensure the continuity of the service and develop the service for the future, outpatient services will be relocated from their current location at the Mineral Hospital Site in central Bath, to a purpose built RNHRD and Therapies Centre at the RUH’s Combe Park site in Bath.  This new centre will bring together a number of outpatient services from the RUH and RNHRD.

Oculus was appointed by Kier Construction as Approved Inspector for the construction of the new RNHRD and Therapies Centre.  Construction started in November 2017, and we have been in regular consultation with the Design Team since January 2017 to help ensure compliance under the Department of Health’s HTM Firecode requirements, as well as the other applicable Building Regulation requirements. The new building will include a hydrotherapy pool, specialist gym, rehabilitation equipment and other facilities to support treatment, recovery, wellbeing and the management of long-term conditions.
