The village of Papworth Everard was our home since we started as a tuberculosis colony back in 1917. The site is the location of many world firsts in cardiothoracic medicine, from heart and lung transplantation through to surgical breakthroughs. It therefore holds many happy memories for patients and staff, but was never purpose built for what Royal Papworth is today.
While it has been sad to leave our home of many years, it is the right thing to do – Royal Papworth is not the place, it is the people. Moving our culture will be just as important as shifting the equipment, the crates and the boxes.
We pride ourselves on delivering the very best care for our patients, and having those same people in a new, state-of-the-art surrounding we hope will enhance that further.
