Royal Papworth Hospital - The new “State of the art” NHS Hospital

Updated: May 13, 2019

The new “state-of-the-art”, NHS Royal Papworth Hospital, located on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus alongside Addenbrooke’s Hospital, is now officially open to patients. The hospital has relocated from Papworth Everade, where it first started life as a tuberculosis colony in 1918.


It is now the UK’s leading heart and lung hospital, treating more than 100,000 patients each year from across the UK. Since carrying out the UK’s first successful heart transplant in 1979 and the world's first successful heart, lung and liver transplant in 1986, the hospital has established an international reputation for excellence in research, facilities and innovation.


As well as performing more heart and lung transplants than any other UK centre, it has the UK’s largest Respiratory Support and Sleep Centre (RSSC). It is the only centre in the UK for a number of specialist services including Pulmonary Endarterectomy and Balloon Pulmonary Angioplasty (BPA).


Papworth Hospital was granted a Royal title by the Queen in September 2017.

AEROCOM UK and The Royal Papworth Hospital

Addenbrookes Hospital already had two successful Aerocom Pneumatic Tube Systems in service, enhancing patient outcomes and care.


The Royal Papworth Hospital chose a new, easy to use, Aerocom AC3000 Pneumatic Tube System to rapidly and reliably transport medical samples, results and documents from 20 patient medical units in the new Royal Papworth buildings directly to 4 main, advanced laboratories on the Addenbrookes site.
