Our Redevelopment programme is creating new facilities appropriate for world-class paediatric care and research and more space to meet the growing demand for our services.
GOSH has been constantly evolving since it opened in an 18th century townhouse in 1852. We are replacing cramped, out of date buildings and planning for the future so we can provide the best care and treatment for more children in safe, spacious surroundings.
We are halfway through an ambitious four-phase redevelopment programme to rebuild two-thirds of the hospital site over a 20-year period.
Phase 2B – the Premier Inn Clinical Building
The Premier Inn Clinical Building will involve redeveloping and refurbishing the current Cardiac Wing and will house a new surgery centre alongside inpatient wards for medical specialties including Rheumatology, Dermatology, Infectious Diseases, Neurosciences and Cardio-respiratory.
The Premier Inn Clinical Building will be connected to the Morgan Stanley Clinical Building, the first part of the Mittal Children’s Medical Centre. The two clinical buildings will be connected floor by floor, allowing the most effective flow of patients and staff between similar facilities.
The completion of the Mittal Children’s Medical Centre will transform the hospital’s inpatient facilities and help us move towards our goal of providing modern accommodation for all the young patients at GOSH, where parents or carers can stay comfortably by their bedside.
Phase 3A – Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children
Phase 3A of our redevelopment programme is the creation of the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children. This will be a world-class multidisciplinary centre of excellence that will bring together clinicians from GOSH and researchers from UCL’s Institute of Child Health and Institute of Cardiovascular Science.
Using leading-edge technologies, the centre will focus on better understanding rare diseases and rapidly translating these findings into new treatments for our patients.
The new purpose-built research centre will house laboratories, manufacturing facilities, research write-up areas and meeting rooms for scientists and medical teams to progress their work.
The development will also provide much-needed outpatient clinical space, completing the translational research circle from pure research to practical patient treatment.
Construction begun in 2015 and is due to be completed in 2018.
We also need to plan for the future and find innovative ways to support new models of care. We are currently developing our Masterplan, setting out our priorities for the next 15 years of the hospital's redevelopment programme.
