Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RPH) is the UK’s leading heart and lung hospital, treating more than 100,000 patients each year.

In 2019, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) announced 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.

Stephen Posey, Chief Executive at Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: “It has been an extraordinary year for Royal Papworth, its staff and patients. To have been rated as ‘outstanding’ in all five CQC domains only two months after moving into our new building is testament to our skilled and dedicated staff whose work has created a culture which delivers the best possible care for our patients”.

Royal Papworth Hospital is a member of Cambridge University Health Partners (CUHP), a partnership between one of the world’s leading universities and three NHS Foundation Trusts. CUHP delivers world-class excellence in healthcare, research, clinical education and improves the health of people across Cambridgeshire and the wider regions.

In 2017, the hospital was granted Royal status by Her Majesty the Queen in recognition of its commitment to excellence in cardiothoracic care.

Royal Papworth moved to a brand new, state-of-the-art building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus in May 2019. Find out more about RPH here.
