If you would like to urgently discuss your patient with heart failure/cardiogenic shock with the advanced heart failure team at Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust then please use the new online 'Refer a Patient' referral system. This online system is currently being trialled during weekday hours 08:00 - 18:00.

If the referral is an emergency or outside of these hours, or if you wish to discuss in more detail before submitting your form, please contact the on-call team via our switchboard. The online form will need to be completed in order for us to accept the referral.

Please do NOT use this form to discuss cardiac transplant recipients or patients with durable LVAD. Contact the on-call team via our switchboard on 01223 638000.   

If you have not had a response to your online referral within one working day please contact the on call team via our switchboard. 

To make a non-urgent referral for outpatient assessment, please send a letter addressed to:

Department of Advanced Heart Failure and Transplantation
Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Papworth Road
Cambridge Biomedical Campus

We will then arrange to meet the patient either in clinic or schedule a full assessment. This will involve a range of planned tests followed by a multidisciplinary discussion to generate an individualised treatment plan.
