Papworth Transplant Support Network at Papworth Hospital

Papworth Hospital ensures patients and relatives are supported by the professionals at Papworth. In 2012, Papworth held a their first Transplant patient involvement event. The event, hosted by the transplant team aimed to hear from patients about what they thought was good about the service they received and also areas for improvement.

The event focussed on all areas of the transplant journey, from assessment through to post transplant care. Patients attending included those waiting for a transplant, those who had received a transplant and those who have received a ventricular assist device.

Feedback from the event is used by the transplant team to improve the service they provide to patients.
