GOSH Arts and Patient Experience: Unidentified mother and child sitting on floor, April 2017

This winter Patients Experience and GOSH Arts worked together to bring the Our Always Values to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) families and patients. 

Choreographer Yael Lowenstein and filmmaker Blossom Carrasco were invited by the teams to work with families and patients across the hospital through drop in contemporary dance workshops which explored what a GOSH welcome meant to them and how it looked.

The project culminated in the production of the Always Welcoming film which celebrates the importance of warm, smiley, happy welcomes within the hospital environment and aims to empower other families and staff to be Our Always Values champions.

The Always Welcoming film can be seen on the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity YouTube channel, on the patient bedside entertainment system and on screens around the Hospital.

Our Always Values ensure patients and families know that they will always be welcomed, made to feel like they are one team with our staff and that those caring for them will be always helpful and expert.
