Papworth: A Moving Story

Throughout 2018, Royal Papworth Hospital is celebrating its centenary year as well as preparing for a historic move to a new hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

To mark 100 years of this extraordinary institution, the film Papworth: A Moving Story tells the fascinating story of how the hospital grew from a tuberculosis 'colony' to a leading heart and lung hospital, which now performs more heart and lung transplants than any other hospital in the UK. Blending archive footage with contemporary interviews with staff, patients and supporters, Papworth: A Moving Story is a celebration of 100 years of medical achievements and personal stories.

The film premiered at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse on 5 July to coincide with the NHS' 70th birthday and was followed by two free screenings in Papworth Everard Village Hall.

This film and screenings were made possible thanks to a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, and with funds from Papworth Hospital Charity.
