Grace, who’s the chair of the GOSH Young People's Forum, has a virtual sit down with our CEO Mat Shaw to get his answers on some of the pressing questions that GOSH patients and siblings would like answered around coronavirus (COVID-19)

It’s really great to know how GOSH are supporting their patients and their families, but also other hospitals and around London too." -- Grace

With the uncertainties around COVID-19, it’s important that questions from children and young people are answered and their worries and concerns addressed. In their 10-minute chat, Grace and Mat go through a series of insightful questions submitted by young people from across GOSH that touch on the following topics:

  • What children and young people can expect coming to GOSH at this time
  • Coronavirus and how it affects children
  • COVID-19 research at GOSH, in collaboration with scientists at the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (ICH) and the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children
  • What COVID-19 means for young people transitioning to another hospital
  • How GOSH staff are being supported and thanked 
Have a listen to their discussion:
