For patients and visitors


Changes to visiting arrangements

To help protect patients and staff during the current pandemic – and in line with other public hospitals throughout Western Australia – Royal Perth Hospital has introduced new visiting arrangements.

These are effective from Sunday 6 March 2022.

Further restrictions apply, please go to the Visiting Times page for more information.


Welcome to Royal Perth Hospital

Royal Perth Hospital (RPH) is a community of committed and highly-trained people working in a variety of speciality areas.

We are dedicated to providing the highest standard of service and care to all patients. We aim to be considerate, courteous and respectful to our patients and their carers, as well as to each other.

RPH is smoke free, including our grounds, buildings, car parks and vehicles.

Smoke free premises

The Royal Perth Hospital campus is a smoke free site.

For the comfort of everyone at the health service, smoking is not permitted on any part of our grounds. This includes inside buildings, foyers, walkways, car parks and vehicles.

Upon admission you will be assessed for nicotine dependence and will be offered nicotine replacement therapy and other supports to help you manage your cravings and other physical effects of nicotine withdrawal. Please talk to our staff to discuss all options with you.

For patients

We are here to help you and are dedicated to providing the best possible care during your stay. Information about your hospital stay will help you become familiar with our hospital before your stay with us.

For visitors

Visits from relatives and friends can lift the spirits of patients and aid their recovery. Visitors are always welcome at our hospital and our information on visiting times, transport, parking and the hospital map will help you plan your visit.


When someone close to you dies, it may be hard to know where to turn for help, advice or financial assistance. The bereavement booklet (PDF 800KB) provides information and practical suggestions to assist you and your family in your time of grief.

The staff of Royal Perth Bentley Group extend their sincere sympathy to you at this sad time.
