GOSH main entrance closes on 19 February 2024

1 Feb 2024, 9:58 a.m.

Our main entrance on Great Ormond Street will be closed for the duration of the construction works of our new Children’s Cancer Centre from 19 February 2024.

Please check your appointment letter or MyGOSH for information about alternative entrances to the main GOSH hospital.

The Morgan Stanley Clinical Building entrance, on Guilford Street, is the best entrance for most people with an appointment or admission in the main hospital.

The new entrance at The Morgan Stanley Clinical Building on Guilford Street

Please use the Morgan Stanley Clinical Building (MSCB) entrance, on Guilford Street, for all appointments and admission in the following buildings: MSCB, Premier Inn, Variety Club and Southwood.

With its colourful artwork, by artists Ling Tan, Usman Haque and children from the hospital school, we hope you find it easy to spot.

Volunteers and colleagues from GOSH will be on hand when you arrive to help you find your way. We also have a new reception area with staff who are ready to welcome you as you come to GOSH.

Watch videos of the route to the entrance from Holborn and Russel Square underground stations.

Appointments in the Octav Botnar Wing

If your appointment or admission is in the Octav Botnar Wing, please access the hospital through the entrance on Lamb's Conduit Street.

Appointments at the Sight and Sound Centre or Falcon Outpatients

If your appointment is at the Sight and Sound Centre, the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine or at Falcon Outpatients in the Zayed Centre for Research, there are no changes in how you access these buildings.

If eligible, parking permits can be collected from the reception in the Lagoon restaurant, near to entrance A of the Morgan Stanley Clinical Building, or Falcon Outpatients, Zayed Centre for Research.

Transfers by ambulance or patient transport

Our patient transport provider, HATs, will bring patients to the Morgan Stanley Clinical Building entrance (MSCB). We have a new patient transport desk and waiting area in the MSCB.

There is no change for patients arriving by emergency ambulance or on a trolley, who will come in via Powis Place, as now.
