Great Ormond Street Hospital

Every day, about 750 seriously ill children and young people from across the UK are seen at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) for life-changing treatment and care. This includes 72 new patients who have never been seen at GOSH before.

TeamGOSH is helping fund four key areas: rebuilding and refurbishment; child and family support services, such as the GOSH Play team; research into treatment and cures; and vital medical equipment. 

Your donation will help children and young people while they are receiving life-changing treatment and care. Here’s what your money could do:

  • £10 could help towards funding an operating microscope that helps surgeons perform ear, nose and throat surgeries on their young patients
  • £48 could fund everything a Play worker needs for two hours of imaginative play with a child on the ward
  • £152 could fund a Play specialist to help reduce anxiety for a child who is scared of needles for blood tests
  • £400 could cover the cost of a 10-night stay in GOSH’s family accommodation, so loved ones can stay minutes, not miles, from their child’s bedside while they receive life-changing treatment and care  
  • £700 could fund a day’s worth of entertainment from musicians, artists and performers through the GOSH Arts programme, to lift the spirits of patients, families and staff
  • £1,115 could fund a Play worker and everything they need to prepare arts and craft packs for creative play on the ward for five days
