Redevelopment

Great Ormond Street Hospital is battling with buildings that are nearing the end of their useful lives and must urgently be replaced.

Many of our inpatient wards, housed in a building built in the 1930s, are becoming increasingly unsuitable for the treatment of seriously ill children.

In order to maintain and advance our position as one of the world’s leading centres for paediatric care and research, we desperately need to upgrade our oldest buildings and create additional space to allow more children to be treated.

Without this redevelopment, our patients will struggle to see the benefits of advances in technology and treatments. Our ambitious four-phase redevelopment programme aims to rebuild two thirds of the hospital site over a 20-year period.
