Staying safe at GOSH and outside the hospital

As we start to reopen some of our clinical services, we’re looking forward to welcoming you back into the hospital. When you arrive, you may notice that things look or run differently than previously. These extra safety measures – from social distancing starfish to the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) – have been put in place to protect everyone at GOSH. (For all our patient and family information on the pandemic access our Coronavirus (COVID-19) information hub.)
