We are committed to carrying out pioneering research to find treatments and cures for some of the most complex illnesses, for the benefit of children here in the UK and worldwide. Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (ICH) were awarded NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) status in 2007, and had the award renewed in 2011. This was in recognition of the research conducted in the organisation. We are the only paediatric BRC in the UK.
As someone who suffers from Coeliac disease, I was a little disappointed with the lack of gluten free food available at the canteen. Apart from this however we found the hospital to be clean and our daughter absolutely loved the Disney outdoor play area! There was also so much to keep her entertained when we were waiting for her scan. All staff were pleasant, friendly and very helpful. The doctor who carried out our daughter’s scan was absolutely amazing, very professional, helped to put our minds at ease.
