Children's Cancer Centre building work

We will keep this page updated so you can find out what to expect when you come to GOSH as we develop our new Cancer Centre.

Changes happening now

Main entrance has moved to Guilford Street

The main entrance on Great Ormond Street has closed. For most people coming to Great Ormond Street Hospital, the best alternative entrance is on Guilford Street.

The map and information below shows which entrances you can use. Appointment letters and My GOSH will also let you know which entrance is best for you to use.

Patient pick-up and drop-off location will move to Guilford Street near the Morgan Stanley Clinical Building entrance. The Great Ormond Street entrance will be closed for the duration of the building works.

Patients arriving by patient transport or ambulance

Patients coming via our patient transport provider HATs, will come to the Morgan Stanley Clinical Building entrance. There is a new waiting area and transport desk nearby.

There is no change for patients arriving by emergency ambulance or on a trolley who will continue to enter the hospital via Powis Place, as now.

Activity inside the hospital

Our construction partner, Sisk, is working to disconnect the Frontage Building from the rest of the hospital buildings and to ensure that no infrastructure needed for the hospital is within the construction zone.

Most of this work is taking place in the yard area between the Variety Club Building, the Premier Inn Building and the Octav Botnar Wing and the Frontage Building and inside the Frontage Building.

You may see construction workers on scaffolding platforms or in the yard. Occasionally, workers may need access to patient areas, if this happens, it will be agreed with you and the clinical teams in advance.

Some activities may make noise, there are quiet periods during the day and maximum limits at all times. Bedroom windows that overlook an area of construction are having a privacy film applied so that builders cannot see in, but you will still be able to see out.

Please talk to your ward team if the work is disturbing you or you have any concerns.

Street works around Great Ormond Street during spring 2024

You may see some road works and changes to the pavement around Great Ormond Street during April and May. This works are happening to prepare for when deconstruction and construction of the CCC starts.

Changes coming soon: changes to traffic routes

Great Ormond Street will become one way from east to west during the construction works. This is due to happen later this year.

Information for local residents

If you live near Great Ormond Street Hospital, our GOSH community website provides information about the project and how the construction process will be managed to limit the impact on our neighbours.

How to get involved

We would like to invite patients and their families to co-design the Children's Cancer Centre (CCC).

Kate, a children's nurse, and Sylvia, a project manager, are asking for current and former oncology parents to join the Parent Advisory Group to help develop the CCC.

The Parent Advisory Group meet virtually on Fridays from 12pm to 1pm once a month in a friendly and supportive environment to discuss what is happening with the centre and ask parents for their valuable suggestions.

You can email with your contact information and Kate or Sylvia will get in touch. Please inform them of any additional needs you may have to facilitate your involvement.
