It is an incredibly exciting time to join Royal Papworth Hospital. After almost 100 years in the village of Papworth Everard in Cambridgeshire, we are now preparing to move to a brand new, state-of-the-art hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus in Spring 2019.

In the last 100 years, Royal Papworth has built an incredible reputation as one of the leading cardiothoracic hospital's in Europe. We are famous for pioneering a series of 'firsts' in heart and lung medicine – from the UK’s first successful heart transplant in 1979 to the world's first successful heart, lung and liver transplant in 1986.

Today, Royal Papworth Hospital carries out more major heart operations than any other hospital in the UK, currently totalling more than 2,500 per year. Our hospital includes the country’s largest heart and lung transplant centre and the national centre for pulmonary endarterectomy. Royal Papworth is also a national centre for a range of other specialist cardiothoracic services, and our survival rates and outcomes are among the best in the world.

Royal Papworth is also a wonderful place to work. Our patients often talk about feeling part of the Royal Papworth 'family' and it is true for our staff members, too. Across the hospital, we aim to create an environment where everyone feels valued and rewarded for the incredible work they do.

Our move to the new Royal Papworth Hospital is the next chapter in our story. It is our chance to keep making history and continue pioneering new treatments that save lives across the world. Our new location on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus will also give us much greater opportunity to work with other research organisations and hospitals to bring new treatments to patients more quickly.

We have big ambitions for the new Royal Papworth Hospital but we need your help to turn our vision into a reality.
