Get involved Appeals Pounds for Papworth Donate Fundraise Pounds for Papworth Papworth Hospital Charity exists to support the groundbreaking work of Papworth Hospital through bridging the gap between NHS funding and the reality of providing such a high provision of care. With almost 50% of our income coming from donations and sponsorship, your support is essential. Papworth Hospital is continually adopting innovative approaches to treating cardiothoracic diseases and the charity takes pride in playing a part in this. Papworth Hospital endeavours to continually lead with bench-to-bedside initiatives that can have a profound effect on patient care not just in the UK, but worldwide. This is only made possible with thanks to the generosity of our supporters. With increasing pressures on the NHS, the charity works hard to secure income to ensure that programmes and treatments do not have to end due to lack of funding. Papworth Hospital treats some of the most life threatening conditions within the NHS and therefore its staff have to work hard to ensure patients and their families are as comfortable as possible. The charity proactively supports its staff base of nearly 2,000 employees in their work; this may be a nurse on a ward, a surgeon in theatre, or our research and development teams who are pushing the boundaries of cardiothoracic treatment, by giving them the tools they need to offer the best care.
