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 We are replacing cramped, out of date buildings and planning for the future so we can provide the best care and treatment for more children in safe, spacious surroundings.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.
The current Phase 2 of the programme will create the Mittal Children's Medical Centre, consisting of two new buildings at the heart of the hospital site:
• The Morgan Stanley Clinical Building, which opened in June 2012
• The Premier Inn Clinical Building, which is under construction and is set to open in 2017
We are also making preparations for Phase 3A to create the Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children. This new building will allow us to care for children and young people with rare diseases, learn more about their conditions and discover new treatments.
Development Control Plan
We also need to plan for the future and find innovative ways to support new models of care. We are currently consulting staff, patients, families and carers on our Development Control Plan (DCP), which sets out the priorities for the next 15 years of the Redevelopment programme.
Wayfinding System Survey
We are testing a new Interactive Wayfinding system that will show you a ‘photo-real’ 3D walkthrough of your selected journey through Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). After choosing where you need to go, you will be shown your route, through the hospital, right to the entrance of the ward or department.
Please spend some time trying out the online wayfinder and complete our online survey. More information can be found on our wayfinding information sheet or contact the Redevelopment team by email if you have any queries.
