The Central Auxiliary Kiosk & Coffee Shop operates a trolley service to wards (Monday to Friday). Newspapers, magazines, fruit, drinks and personal items are available for purchase.


The RHH is unable to launder patients’ personal clothing. If you have no clean personal clothing due to an emergency admission, the hospital will supply pyjamas or gowns.

Leaving the Ward/Unit

You are asked to tell the nurse before leaving the ward/unit area as they are directly responsible for your safety while in the care of the RHH.

Library Service

A mobile library service, provided by volunteers, visits wards each week.
