What is MyGOSH?
MyGOSH is a safe and secure online portal that enables children, young people and families to have access to specific parts of the electronic patient record at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). This means everyone can manage their health and care wherever they can get online.

How do I sign up for MyGOSH?
Patients and families who want to use MyGOSH will be activated or sent an activation e-mail/SMS during their clinic appointment or inpatient stay. We may also get in touch to offer you the chance to sign up before you come to GOSH for the first time.
You can also email MyGOSH.Helpdesk@gosh.nhs.uk to speak to a member of the MyGOSH team.
If you are a parent of a patient under 16 years, or parent of a patient aged 16-18 years without capacity, you can sign up as a ‘proxy’ to see your child’s record.
If you are a patient over the age of 16 years, the MyGOSH record belongs to you and you can sign up yourself. You can also give permission to your parents to have access as a ‘proxy’.
How do I access MyGOSH?
After you have signed up, you can access the MyGOSH web login page by going to https://my.gosh.nhs.uk/MyChart/.
