Our Locations

Royal Bolton Hospital

Royal Bolton Hospital delivers a wide range of services, including maternity and a specialist neonatal unit.

All staff and visitors may continue to use face masks in non-clinical settings, however this will no longer be mandated but face masks will continue to be required in all clinical settings.

We’re really pleased to be able to remove any visiting restrictions that were introduced during the pandemic.

This means that relatives and friends are no longer required to book a slot to visit a patient in hospital.

Thank you for your continued support and help to protect everyone.
