This page from Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) explains about junctional epidermolysis bullosa with pyloric atresia and how it can be managed. It also contains suggestions for making everyday life more comfortable and contact details for a support organisation.
Clinical outcomes are measurable changes in health, function or quality of life that result from our care. Constant review of our clinical outcomes establishes standards against which to continuously improve all aspects of our practice.
A new treatment that uses ‘molecular scissors’ to edit genes and create designer immune cells programmed to hunt out and kill drug resistant leukaemia has been used at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
CLOSED: The Francis Crick Institute PhD for Clinicians (3 years). We are looking for talented and motivated clinicians who are passionate about research, have a strong academic track record and hold full GMC registration or equivalent.
A groundbreaking research programme aims to beat childhood brain tumours. The £4 million study, co-funded by grants from Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, the Brain Tumour Charity and Children with Cancer UK, will look at new ways to treat some of the deadliest brain tumours affecting children.
During summer 2014 we held a public consultation on our plans to create a new building where scientists and clinicians more accurately diagnose, treat and potentially cure children and young people with rare diseases.
