Thank you for your feedback

Over the last three years the RUH and commissioners of the services provided from the Mineral Water Hospital site sought the views of patients, staff and others in order to identify and provide the best new home for each service.

WE have now completed our programme of patient and public engagement – thank you to all those who took part.  Staff and services will relocate from the Mineral Water Hospital site in autumn 2019.

Our overarching principles remain the same; wherever our services are located, we want to be able to continue to deliver the same high standards of care in the future.
