Excellence in heart and lung care
Achieving some of the best outcomes in the world for our patients, Royal Papworth Hospital is the UK’s largest specialist cardiothoracic hospital and the country’s main heart and lung transplant centre.
As a Foundation Trust, Royal Papworth Hospital is led by a Board of Directors made up of Executive and Non-executive members and a Board of Governors made up of 18 members of the public and seven staff. There are also seven representatives appointed from other key organisations. Royal Papworth Hospital was awarded foundation trust status on 1 July 2004.
Royal Papworth Hospital has always been a patient-centred organisation and as an NHS Foundation Trust we strongly believe that greater public participation in the affairs of the hospital combined with the freedoms afforded to foundation trusts helps to deliver even better services to our patients and the communities that we serve.
Royal Papworth Hospital values and encourages feedback and comments from not only our patients, but also their visiting friends and relatives.
