When your child is admitted to the intensive care units at GOSH

PICU (Seahorse), NICU (Dolphin) and CICU (Flamingo) are units for babies, children and young people requiring intensive care. This page explains a little about the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Cardiac Intensive Care (CICU) at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
