Our new hospital

Changes to the opening date for the new Royal Papworth Hospital »

We are preparing to move to a brand new, state-of-the-art hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus.

In the last 100 years, Royal Papworth Hospital 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. 

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.
