The YPF celebrates its third birthday

The Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Young People’s Forum (YPF) has been celebrating its third birthday! The YPF is a group of young people aged between 11 and 25 and we are all passionate about GOSH. 

We meet regularly to offer insight, bring experience and support GOSH to better understand the needs of young people and help the hospital develop and deliver services that meet our needs.

Over the last three years projects have included:

  • updating the Teenagers’ section of the GOSH website
  • ensuring that hospital gowns are more appropriate for young people
  • providing suggestions to improve transition to adult services

We are involved in an ongoing project with the Redevelopment team helping influence future buildings at GOSH. 

This all makes a real difference for young people at GOSH.

If you would like to join the YPF and help make a difference, we’d love to hear from you! Please email ypf.member@gosh.nhs.uk

Bring on the next three years!
