We came across the abandoned part of the Hospital on are way to look at a near by factory
Papworth Hospital was founded in 1918 as a sanitorium for the treatment of tibetculosis among discharged soldiers who had served in theFirst World War, following a campaign led by Elsbeth Dimsdaled, and was initially known as the “Cambridgeshire Tuberculosis Colony”. The institution was initially under the direction of Dr (later Sir) Pendrill Varrier-Jones. From the 1950s, surgical facilities developed, beginning with thoracic (chest/lung) surgery and expanding to cardiac surgery. Surgeon Ben Milsein performed the first open-heart surgery at Papworth Hospital in September 1958
In August 1979, surgeon Terence English performed the first successful heart transplant in the UK at Papworth Hospital. The patient, Keith Castle, lived for over five years following his surgery. In August 1994 a team of doctors carried out a revolutionary operation when 62-year-old Arthur Cornhill was given the world's first permanent battery-operated heart.

That's the Papworth Trust Publishing building. As far as I'm aware the Papworth Trust produced all their literature in there.

There did used to be an abandoned part of the hospital around back here, there was an old therapy building but I believe both that and this have gone now.
