We are firm believers that the amazing work of our staff needs to be recognised. The staff at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) produce research at many different levels ranging from excellent clinical audits to randomised control trials.

Celebrating and sharing the exciting research, innovation and projects developed within GOSH.

This work can be found hanging on many a poster wall at various conferences and presented internationally, but now it’s time to bring it home and celebrate the work at GOSH.

It is our pleasure to announce the Inaugural Great Ormond Street Hospital Conference ‘Advances in Paediatrics’ on the Friday 6 October 2017.
