From 25 March 2019, patients and families will be able to sign up for the new patient portal MyGOSH.
When the hospital’s new electronic patient record system goes live on 19 April 2019 users will be able to take advantage of all of the functionality in MyGOSH.
If you have an appointment at GOSH which coincides with our go live period, there could be some delays to your appointment and/or it may last a little longer as our staff get used to the new system.
We apologise in advance if this impacts on the length of time you spend at GOSH and the planning of your journey back home after the appointment.
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. MyGOSH will let you:
- Review and reschedule certain appointments as well as accept earlier appointment offers
- Look at the health summary – this is taken from your electronic patient record so is always up to date
- View test results
- Ask for repeat prescriptions for medication that is only supplied by GOSH
- Communicate securely with the medical team
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.Activation@gosh.nhs.uk to speak to a member of the MyGOSH team.
