Charity: Royal Papworth Hospital Charity
Royal Papworth Hospital Charity exists to support the ground-breaking work of Royal Papworth Hospital. With increasing pressures on NHS resources, the charity plays a vital role in ensuring the Hospital continues to provide the highest standards of care, whilst also ensuring the development of new ways of treating heart and lung disease. Heart and lung diseases remain two of the biggest killers in the UK and it is estimated that 3.5 million men and 3.5 million women in the UK are currently living with cardiovascular disease. Pioneering medicine and innovative surgical advances at Royal Papworth Hospital have not only transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of patients but also helped shape cardiothoracic medicine internationally. This has been made possible through the generous funding provided by Royal Papworth Hospital Charity.
