The new centre
Opening in June 2021, the new GOSH Sight and Sound Centre supported by Premier Inn will transform the experience and care of children and young people from across the UK. Patients and over 100 clinicians have moved from outdated existing facilities into the bespoke, multi-disciplinary Centre designed especially for these children’s sensory needs.
A first-of-its-kind for children in the UK, the Centre features state-of-the-art soundproofed booths for hearing tests, an eye imaging suite, a dispensing opticians and other testing facilities. There is also a sensory garden with plants that children can see, touch, smell and hear, and bespoke and engaging artworks especially commissioned for children with sensory loss.
Children with sensory loss have unique needs, and thanks to this new facility, our expert teams can treat them in surroundings that will enhance their overall experience of coming to GOSH, taking away some of the challenges or worries they faced in our older spaces.
