Clinics and wards used by the Rheumatology department
The Rheumatology department at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) has a joint ward with the Dermatology department called Penguin Ward.
Penguin Ward has nine inpatient beds and is located on Level 6 of the Southwood Building.
When your child is due for admittance to the ward, you will receive a welcome pack containing information about what to expect and the facilities that will be available to you and your child.
We run our clinics in either the surgical outpatients on Level 2 of the Variety Club Building, or in the outpatients at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, which is located next door to GOSH.
Your clinician will tell you which clinic your child will attend.
