Surgical & Outpatient Building, Papworth Hospital

Papworth Hospital, located in Cambridgeshire is the UK's main heart and lung transplant centre. To increase the number of surgical procedures performed each year, new accommodation for an inpatient ward was required.

Our team designed the new ward which provides level 1 inpatient accommodation as an extension to the current ward. Including an additional 12 single bedrooms with en-suites, staff base, utility rooms and associated ancillary spaces, the new facility is located at first floor level to allow connectivity with the existing ward.

The new facility allows improved patient flow and the introduction of the ‘productive ward principle’ allowing better working and patient care environment while plant and large scale storage space is located at ground floor.
