All welcome to debate Great Ormond Street Hospital priorities

13 November 2007

We’re holding a public meeting to discuss Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children’s clinical strategy - what services it offers, how, and where. We’re finalising which services we will prioritise for expansion, and also how we will deliver care on other sites. All are welcome to feed back on our plans.


Tuesday 20 November
6.30pm - 8pm
UCL Institute of Child Health, 30 Guilford St, London, WC1N 1EH
(The Institute is close to the hospital)

Great Ormond Street Hospital offers the widest range of children’s services of any UK hospital and is with its partners the largest centre for research into childhood illness outside the US.


The meeting will also be a chance to discuss our proposal to transfer management of the International and Private Patients division to a new independent charity. The hospital launched a public consultation on the 1st October and this is your chance to discuss the plans face to face with Dr Jane Collins, the hospital chief executive.


The consultation site for the international patient issue is www.gosh.nhs.uk/world

Notes to editors

Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Trust is the country’s leading centre for treating sick children, with the widest range of specialists under one roof.

With the UCL Institute of Child Health, we are the largest centre for paediatric research outside the US and play a key role in training children’s health specialists for the future.

Our charity needs to raise £50 million every year to help rebuild and refurbish Great Ormond Street Hospital, buy vital equipment and fund pioneering research. With your help we provide world class care to our very ill children and their families.
