Celebrating 170 years of GOSH: Ant's story

14 Feb 2022, 4 p.m.

On this day in 1852 we opened our doors for the first time. From our small beginnings of just ten beds, we now treat around 600 seriously ill children, from all over the UK, every day.

To help us look back at 170 years of our hospital, we caught up with former GOSH patient, Ant, and his nurse at the time, Maura.
