GOSH DEN Title Banner

We are very excited to announce the launch of our brand new Virtual Learning Environment GOSH DEN (Digital Education Network)!

This brand new platform offers a variety of different learning resources for both clinical and non-clinical staff. As staff education and training influences every stage of the patient journey, we want to ensure that exceptional care continues to be given to our exceptional patients, by providing healthcare staff with up-to-date knowledge and skills.

Technology enhanced learning

As part of our 5 year strategy at GOSH to go ‘Above and Beyond’ one of our priorities is to expand our use of technology enhanced learning. GOSH DEN will allow us to provide staff with the appropriate tools and opportunities to develop themselves for the future.

Learning materials provided on the DEN include webinars, e-learning packages, blended courses, podcasts, and much more. GOSH DEN is open to ALL professionals working in paediatric healthcare, both within and outside of the trust. Content covered is highly varied including courses on Legal Education, Play in hospital, MRCPCH and of course many other areas. Some courses are set in time and place, others can be completed in a self-paced manner, allowing flexibility of learning

How to access

You can access GOSH DEN from any computer, tablet or smartphone using Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge at: https://den.gosh.nhs.uk/.

Simply create a log in using your email and log in to learn! Please note that if you are GOSH Staff we ask that you use Single Sign On.

Once you access the DEN, there will be a welcome course available to help you get started using GOSH DEN.

Our Digital Learning Team

Our digital learning team is passionate about bringing you the best learning experience possible. Here are some of the team's favourite features of GOSH DEN:

Starting in this role a year ago, I had two key aims: to recruit a highly skilled digital learning team and to launch a contemporary learning environment that offers inclusive and accessible education to all. I am over the moon to have achieved both of those aims, and I can't wait for the Trust (and beyond) to access The Den.

Amy Leanord, Head of Education for Digital Learning

One of the best features about GOSH Den is our ability to interact with others. By using the discussion boards, messaging and classroom functions, we can learn from each other and feel like one community.

Thania Rashid, Senior Business Support Officer

I enjoy the intuitive nature in which one can navigate around GOSH DEN and the flexibility of being able to access the platform on Trust or Home PCs, as well as smartphones and tablets. GOSH DEN is user friendly, eye catching, and quite frankly the best product I have seen for online education in my many years of working for the NHS.

Dr Abhimanu Lall, Education Lead for Digital Learning

We look forward to seeing you at GOSH DEN very soon!

In conversation with our Specialist Nurse for Organ Donation

As a part of Organ Donation Week, we spoke with Robyn Prescott, Specialist Nurse for Organ Donation (SNOD) at Great Ormond Street Hospital and North Middlesex Hospital, to learn about her role, and why it’s important to talk about organ donation.

Representing GOSH at the British Transplant Games

In July, 12 of our patients headed to Leeds to take part in the British Transplant Games. We caught up with kidney transplant recipients Ben, Daisy and Jasmine who share their experience and favourite memories of the games.

The passing of our patron, Queen Elizabeth II

It is with great sadness that Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH) has heard about the death of the hospital’s patron, Queen Elizabeth II.
