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 We are replacing cramped, out of date buildings and planning for the future so we can provide the best care and treatment for more children in safe, spacious surroundings.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 a four-phase redevelopment programme to rebuild two-thirds of the hospital site over a 20-year period.
If you have any queries about the redevelopment programme or would like to join the GOSH Redevelopment Residents’ Liaison Group please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 3 – Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children
Phase 3 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 the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health and UCL 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.
Phase 4 – Design consultation for a new clinical building on Great Ormond Street
GOSH is running a competition in partnership with the Royal Institute of British Architects to select a team to work with us in developing design proposals for a new clinical building on Great Ormond Street. We are working towards submitting an application for planning permission in mid-2018 and, subject to approval, starting construction in late 2019.
