Professor Wallwork, Chairman of Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust was reunited with a Transplant patient 30 years after performing her life-saving transplant at Papworth. Carol says:

The transplant gave me so much. It completely transformed my life and allowed me to do things I never thought possible, like see my son grow up and have a rewarding career.

Professor John Wallwork, Chairman at Papworth Hospital Foundation Trust, said:

It is wonderful to see Carol celebrating the 30th anniversary of her heart-lung transplant at Papworth Hospital. Carol's operation took place just a few years after I performed the first successful heart-lung transplant in Europe, but since then we have carried out more than a thousand life-saving transplants here at Papworth. As a surgeon it is incredibly rewarding to see a former patient enjoy such a good quality of life 30 years after surgery and I wish Carol many healthy and happy years to come.

Carol is fundraising for Papworth Hospital Charity in recognition of her 30 year transplant anniversary. To support Carol with her fundraising, please visit her Just Giving page:
