Royal Papworth is a specialist centre for the care of patients with malignant mesothelioma. We provide a rapid investigation and diagnosis service for patients suspected of having mesothelioma, alongside advice on optimal treatments which may involve participation in clinical trials.

Every patient is discussed in a dedicated mesothelioma multi-disciplinary team meeting and supported by a team of chest physicians, oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists and specialists in palliative care who specialise in mesothelioma. This team is co-ordinated by Kate Slaven, a Mesothelioma UK clinical nurse specialist who offers advice on all aspects of supportive and palliative care.
