The Tick Tock Club - GOSH's Giving Club

A young girl sits on a bed whilst playing a card game. Her left arm is raised in triumph. Her Play Specialist is next to her and is giving her the thumbs up.

The Critical Care Unit (CCU) at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is where the most seriously ill children from across the UK are treated.

But the hospital’s current CCU is not fit for purpose.

The facilities are neither spacious nor comfortable for the 1,300 children treated in the CCU every year - or their families who want to be near them.

The amazing CCU staff provide exceptional care to these patients, but the current facilities are holding them back.

We need to build a new Critical Care Unit

Within our revolutionary new Children’s Cancer Centre, we need to build a new Critical Care Unit. This world-class facility will be an international resource and exemplar of healthcare design for children's critical care, and cancer care and treatment.

But we can’t build it without you.

What is the Tick Tock Club?

Established in 2006, the Tick Tock Club at GOSH Charity is a giving club for people who are passionate about children’s healthcare. Members come together to make a transformational impact and a real, lasting difference to thousands of seriously ill children from across the UK and beyond.

To date, the Tick Tock Club has raised over £43 million to help create three world-class clinical centres and one new state-of-the-art iMRI Suite at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Now we’re embarking on our most ambitious appeal to date – to fund the new Critical Care Unit within our new, state-of-the-art Children’s Cancer Centre.
