Royal Papworth Hospital: Hospital in England
Royal Papworth Hospital is the UK's leading heart and lung hospital, located on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus in Cambridgeshire, England. It is also the country's biggest cardiothoracic transplant centre, having carried out more heart and lung transplants in 2018/19 than any other hospital. In April 2019, following the construction of a new hospital, it began its relocation from its previous location in the village of Papworth Everard to the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, treating its first patients in the new hospital on 1 May 2019. The old hospital was home to numerous medical firsts, including the first successful heart transplant in the UK, the world's first successful heart, lung and liver transplant, and one of the world's first non-beating-heart transplants.
