Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is an international centre of excellence in child healthcare. Together with our research partner, the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, we form the UK’s only academic Biomedical Research Centre specialising in paediatrics.

The hospital is dedicated to children’s healthcare and to finding new and better ways to treat childhood illnesses.
