GOSH statement on a serious incident that took place outside our hospital today

4 Feb 2022, 3:23 p.m.

Earlier today (4 February 2022) the reception area to one of our buildings was occupied by protestors in connection with a strike action by a small number of our security staff.

The police were called and the protestors left to continue their protest outside.

Sometime later, one of the protestors was physically assaulted and we called the police immediately. We understand that a GOSH contractor was present when the assault took place and we are working with the police to understand his role before deciding what action is most appropriate.

As a children’s hospital we unequivocally condemn violence of any kind.

We respect everyone’s right to peaceful protest.
