GOSH Conference 2021 - Above & Beyond

1 Dec 2021, 12:20 p.m.

On Friday 19th November, the GOSH Learning Academy hosted their 5th Annual GOSH conference which was run virtually and delivered very successfully!

The day was themed around Innovation in Clinical Care, Research and Technology and Education.

We had over 530 participants logged onto our conference to see the incredible work that had been carried out within the Trust this past year.


The day started with an inspirational talk from one of GOSH’s Young Peoples Forum Members, Miss Rose Dolan, followed by a very interesting talk from Professor Paolo De Coppi around Fetal and Neonatal tissue regeneration.

The morning sessions went on to cover a broad width of topics on our work in GOSH this year, with the afternoon sessions showcasing the top submitted abstracts. The day finished with ‘Xtreme Everest: What we learnt by taking young children to the top of the world’ presented by Professor Mark Peters.


We would like to again congratulate our Oral presentation winner Sheena Visram and YPF Member Oceiah Annesley and Digital poster winner Sheena Visram. In total, we accepted 128 abstracts, both digital and oral.

We would like to finish by thanking all that attended GOSH Conference 2021 and all the internal and external speakers who made the day informative and interesting (as our audience told us within the feedback).

We look forward to seeing you next year!
