The Tick Tock Club

The Tick Tock Club now aims to raise £10 million to build a new state-of-the-art intra-operative MRI (iMRI) suite that will transform the way brain surgery is performed at Great Ormond Street Hospital to improve the outcomes for our young patients. 

The Neurology and Neurosurgery teams at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) see more children with brain tumours and perform more operations for patients with epilepsy than any other hospital in the country.

In a major step forward, both teams plan to make the uncertainty and risk associated with multiple procedures a thing of the past. They plan to integrate an MRI scanner into a new operating theatre to create an intra-operative MRI (iMRI) suite. This facility will make imaging the brain during operations a seamless procedure, giving critically ill children the best chance of a positive result.
