Our home on the Biomedical Campus
Partnership working is at Royal Papworth’s core; to achieve excellence, hospitals need to reach out and build strong clinical relationships across organisational boundaries throughout the globe and access the very best training and education.
The location of the hospital on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus provides the UK with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to develop a world-class research institute for heart and lung disease (HLRI) in partnership with the University of Cambridge expanding opportunities on which the treatments of tomorrow will be based. This facility opened in May 2022.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) announced on the 16th October that it has rated Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as ‘outstanding’ overall, and across all five of the CQC domains; safe, caring, effective, responsive, and well-led.
This is the first time ever that an NHS hospital trust has achieved an ‘outstanding’ rating across the five key questions that the CQC asks when it inspects hospitals. It is also the first NHS acute Trust to have gained an ‘outstanding’ rating in the ‘Safe’ category.
Royal Papworth Charity provides grants to support the hospital in a variety of ways which helped achieve the outstanding rating across all five domains. With your support we can continue to provide this vital funding.
