GOSH main entrance has now moved

19 Feb 2024, 10:04 a.m.

The main entrance on Great Ormond Street is now closed and the new entrance can now be found at The Morgan Stanley Clinical Building, on Guilford Street. This is the best entrance for most people with an appointment or admission in the main hospital.

The original entrance on Great Ormond Street will be closed for the duration of the construction works of our new Children’s Cancer Centre.

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

Accessible entrances

Both The Morgan Stanley Clinical Building and Octav Botnar entrances are wheelchair accessible.

From The Morgan Stanley Clinical Building there is a lift to the Lagoon.

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.
