After 100 years in the village of Papworth Everard, Cambridgeshire, we are currently preparing to move to a brand new, state-of-the-art hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.
Construction work on the new hospital is now complete and we expect to move all of our clinical services to the new hospital during a three-week move period from 23 April 2019.
The new hospital will feature:
During the three-week move period in April and May, our services will gradually close down at the Papworth Everard site while new services open in the new hospital. Patients due to attend an appointment at the hospital after 23 April 2019 will receive an appointment letter before then to confirm where their appointment will take place and how to get there.
Travelling to the new hospital (Download pdf leaflet)
Please find below some answers to common questions about our new hospital.
The new hospital is based on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, close to Addenbrooke’s Hospital. A map to the Campus will be included with your appointment letter, as well as information about how to get to the hospital by car or public transport.
You can also download this leaflet about travelling to the new Royal Papworth Hospital.
In January 2019, it was announced that a new 'H' bus service connecting Papworth Everard, Cambourne and the Cambridge Biomedical Campus will launch in April 2019.
Parking will be available in Car Park 2, which is next to the new hospital. There are a few spaces outside the hospital to allow for patients being dropped off or collected, but these will have a maximum 10 minute stay.
We will have four Blue Badge spaces outside of the hospital, but there are additional disabled spaces on levels 1-4 of Car Park 2.
Patients will be entitled to discounted parking (£3.60 per day) but they will need to show their appointment letter or card at the customer service desk within the car park for the discount to be applied. Other rates apply for visitors. Full details are displayed at the car park and will be available on our website from early 2019.
Parking will need to be paid for at one of the pay stations within the car park entrance on the ground floor. The machines accept both card and cash payments.
Parking will also be available at Park & Ride sites around Cambridge. The closest Park & Ride sites to the new hospital are Trumpington and Babraham Road and these have direct bus services to the Campus.
Your appointment letter will provide the location of your appointment. If you have any queries when you get to the hospital please go to the main reception on the ground floor of the hospital and a member of staff will be able to help you.
One of the many benefits of our new hospital is that all outpatient appointments will be in the same place on the ground floor.
There will be a restaurant, convenience store and cash point on the ground floor of the hospital. There will also be free wifi throughout the hospital. Inpatients will also be able to enjoy our new free Patient Entertainment System with up to 100 TV and radio channels.
We are currently recruiting new staff to come and work in our new hospital. For more information about our current vacancies, please visit the 'Working with us' section of our website.
