International Patients

We are proud to welcome patients from all around the world to benefit from our specialist services. We appreciate that you may be anxious not only about your treatment whilst in hospital but also the country and the foreign language. Your health and well being is important to us.

Do you have interpreters on site?

We do not have interpreters on site, but we can arrange for an interpreter to be available for you.

Overseas referrals

We welcome patients and their families from overseas. We ensure that all patients' cultural and religious needs are respected during their stay.

Referrals are generally made from the consultant doctor in the home country to the Papworth consultant.

Patients normally pay themselves or are sponsored by their Embassy or Military/Medical Attaché.

Our private patient officers can help by advising on appropriate specialists and making arrangements to take you from and to the airport. They can also arrange appointments, admission to the hospital and can help with financial matters, through liaison with embassies, international insurance companies and other organisations.
