Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RPH) is one of the largest specialist cardiothoracic (heart and lung) hospitals in Europe and includes the country's main heart and lung transplant centre. Over the last three years, it has performed the highest number of heart surgery procedures in the UK whilst achieving the country’s lowest cardiac surgery mortality rate.

Royal Papworth Hospital’s services are internationally recognised and include cardiology, respiratory medicine, sleep medicine, cardiac surgery, thoracic surgery and heart & lung transplantation.

Located in Cambridgeshire in the East of England, the Hospital has been named as a top healthcare employer and one of the top 40 places to work based on the results of a staff survey by the Health Service Journal and Nursing Times, supported by the Department of Health and NHS Employers.

“Our current hospital is outdated, and to continue providing high quality care to our patients we are moving to a bespoke, purpose-built hospital on the world-class Cambridge Biomedical Campus (CBC).

The move to CBC will allow Royal Papworth Hospital to work alongside some of the world’s leading healthcare companies and organisations including Cambridge University Hospitals, giving our patients immediate access to a range of services and also expanding opportunities in terms of research and education on which the treatments of tomorrow will be based.” Find out more about the Trust.
