Earlier this month, Royal Papworth Hospital closed its Papworth Everard site to patients and visitors as part of its move to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

Decommissioning work is now under way on our old buildings, lasting through until the summer, prior to handing over the site to a future buyer. 

During this time we will be working with other public sector organisations such as Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service to allow them to undertake training exercises on the site. 

Therefore, residents and workers in Papworth village should not be alarmed or concerned by the increased presence of blue light vehicles and emergency services in the area. 

The activity will mainly be throughout the evenings, but the site will also be used on occasion in the day, both in the week and at weekends.
