2012 press releases from Great Ormond Street Hospital

GOSH statement following further coverage on the Independent’s website today

A further story today on the online newspaper the Independent’s website states our Chief Executive has admitted in two emails to staff that the hospital had “got used to some bad behaviours” and more needed to be done to address bullying and harassment.

At GOSH we believe in being open and transparent with our staff when there are issues that need to be addressed and tackled.

Our full statement below talks about how we openly communicate with staff and the work that has been done to improve staff culture at GOSH.

GOSH statement following coverage on the Independent’s website today

A story today on the online newspaper the Independent’s website makes the serious allegation that Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) tried to cover up the preventable death of patient Jasmine Hughes and deliberately misled the coroner and the General Medical Council following her death.

These are the most serious of allegations and ones that we categorically refute.

Here is a full statement from our Chief Executive Matthew Shaw.

Back in lockdown: adjusting to the new rules: information for families

We knew that 2020 was going to be a strange year and it’s certainly feeling like the weirdness isn’t coming to an end yet. Now that England is back in lockdown (other parts of the UK have been in lockdown or faced restrictions already), it is understandable that everyone is feeling tired, confused and nervous about what the future will bring.
