Rebuilding and refurbishment

With your help, GOSH's redevelopment programme enables the creation of patient-centred spaces, designed to deliver world-class care for some of the UK's most seriously ill children.

Your money goes to support the design, construction and fitting of new buildings and the renovation of older areas to give our patients the best care and experience possible.

Whether it's new inpatient and intensive care beds, state-of-the-art operation theatres or all-important spaces for families to relax or play – your support is critical to the continued transformation of GOSH.


The completion of the Mittal Children’s Medical Centre, has transformed the hospital, it spans across two connecting wings, which includes the new Premier Inn Clinical Building and the Morgan Stanley Clinical Building, with a total of 240 beds and modern facilities to help give children the best possible outcome. Explore the new centre with our immersive virtual reality video.

We’re soon to open vital new accommodation for parents to stay close to the hospital, and the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children – a world-leading new research facility – is due for completion in late 2018.

Outside space is also important. In 2016, the BBC's DIY SOS team took on the remarkable challenge of transporting an award-winning garden from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show across London to a rooftop at GOSH. The Morgan Stanley Garden is now a much-loved part of the hospital community.

A nurse’s perspective

Polly Livermore is Clinical Nurse Manager of Penguin Ward, where patients with skin, joint and muscle conditions are currently treated. She is looking forward to the opening of their new ward in the completed Mittal Children’s Medical Centre.

“The challenges we face are all to do with the ward environment. All of the negative feedback we get is to do with the lack of space. These facilities don’t match the standard of care that we offer.”

“We’re really looking forward to having more space and more appropriate rooms when we move into the new ward,” says Polly.
