About Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Royal Papworth Hospital is the UK’s leading heart and lung hospital, treating more than 100,000 patients each year from across the UK.

It is the only facility in the UK for a number of specialist services including pulmonary endarterectomy and balloon pulmonary angioplasty.

Ninety-eight per cent of patients say they would recommend Royal Papworth Hospital to their friends and family.

Since carrying out the UK’s first successful heart transplant in 1979, Royal Papworth now performs more heart and lung transplants than any other UK centre each year.

The hospital moved from the village of Papworth Everard, its home for 101 years, to a state-of-the-art hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus in spring 2019.  

Royal Papworth Hospital is a member of Cambridge University Health Partners, a partnership between one of the world's leading Universities and three NHS Foundation Trusts. CUHP delivers world-class excellence in healthcare, research, clinical education and improves the health of people across Cambridgeshire and the wider regions.
