Rainforest Wards

Rainforest Ward is split into two separate wards as part of a reconfiguration project to improve patient experiences and increase capacity for beds. 

Both wards share some facilities, though they are run independently with separate managers and nursing teams.


Both wards are located on Level 8 of the Southwood Building at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

For security reasons, the doors to all ward areas are kept locked. Please ring the bell and when asked, state who you are and the name of your child. We will do our best to answer the bell as quickly as possible but may be delayed if we are busy with another child. Alternatively, for a £5 refundable deposit, we will give you a swipe card which will give you access to both wards.
