Spinal surgery at GOSH

At Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), we have developed a pathway for children and young people having spinal surgery. Spinal surgery is a complex procedure, so we want you to understand the benefits and risks of the operation so you can make an informed decision about whether to go ahead. This page explains what will happen from your child’s initial clinic appointment through to discharge, which clinicians you may meet and what to expect.

Episode 3: 'Mend My Brain'

As the largest paediatric centre in the UK for brain surgery, Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) provides the last chance for many children with complex neurological conditions. The third episode of the BBC documentary series Great Ormond Street looks at the difficult decision-making and intricate surgical procedures facing patients with a variety of these complex conditions. 

How to get referred

Lots of people contact the hospital asking for how to be referred to see our doctors. This page explains the process you need to follow. We cannot accept referrals from anyone who is not a doctor and as we do not have an Accident and Emergency Department at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). You should not come here unless you have an appointment or an admission.

Our projects

The Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Neo-natal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are crucial components of the hospital, and ensuring that parents’ and loved ones can easily access both of these wards is one of the Quality Improvement team’s biggest priorities.
