National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) BRC (Biomedical Research Centre) researchers, working in collaboration with the BRC at NIHR Queen Square Dementia and the Wolfson Biomarker Dementia consortium at Institute of Neurology (IoN), have developed a new test to diagnose different types of dementia, which they hope will allow for more reliable and accurate diagnosis of the neurodegenerative conditions of Lewy Body Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
All hospitals are required to publish information about the numbers of nurses working on each ward day and night, both registered and non registered, together with the percentage of shifts meeting safe staffing guidelines.
NIHR Great Ormond Street Hospital Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) has provided important infrastructure funding for research at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (ICH) and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), since we were first awarded BRC-status in 2007. This research...
Our aim is for patients, their families/carers, and members of the public to be actively involved in our research at all stages. We believe that Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) helps make sure research reflects the needs and views of the public and is more likely to produce results that can be used to improve health care.
Working in close partnership with the Institute of Child Health, University College London and South Bank University, Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is the largest paediatric research and training centre in Britain.
