Today Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity launches a new campaign which vividly chronicles the events during a day in the life of the hospital. One Day at GOSH is a compelling visual and intimate account of 24 hours at the hospital.
The charity’s film crew spent 24 hours in the company of patients, families, staff and volunteers of GOSH.
Here at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) we are committed to providing a wide range of choices of food and drink that reflect the different needs of our children, young people and their families. This range includes vegan and vegetarian options as well as food choices to reflect religious and cultural differences.
We also are working to reduce sugar and so are increasing our choices of healthy snacks and zero sugar drinks available in the Lagoon Restaurant. If you are receiving food as an inpatient on a ward and want to discuss the food choices available the ward staff would welcome any questions. The ward staff will work with our Catering Team to support you.
