COVID-19 (coronavirus) update.

The hospital is currently closed to visitors.
We have implemented a number of restrictions to minimise the spread of COVID-19 at the RHN.

Read about the measures we are taking to keep our patients and residents protected.

Staying connected

Staying connected: can you help?

As we have stopped visits to the RHN for the time being, we are doing everything we can to keep our patients and residents connected with the world.

Wherever possible, we will be using technology to allow video messaging between patients and residents at the RHN and their families and friends. We already have a number of iPads and Android tablets set up for this purpose.

However, we don’t have enough to keep everyone connected – and this is where you come in! If you have an old tablet, either iPad or Android, which still functions but you don’t mind donating it to the cause, we’d be incredibly grateful for it.

If you have a device you could donate

  • Back up any data, photos or other media you would like to keep – we will reformat the devices so you will lose whatever’s on there.
  • If you’re donating an iPad, you’ll need to remove your Apple ID from it. If it’s connected to your account, we won’t be able to use it! Find out more on the Apple support website.
  • Write your name and address on a piece of paper, so we can keep track of your device, and either drop it off at the RHN’s main Reception between 9am and 5pm, or post it in a padded package to

Thank you very much for any help you can offer. Being able to see family and friends during this time will be incredibly beneficial to our community and we’ll make great use of any tablets you can provide.
