GOSH Charity launches COVID-19 Appeal

The NHS is facing an unprecedented challenge and Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity needs your help now, more than ever before.

Dear supporter,

We’re all facing an unprecedented challenge with the COVID-19 crisis and many people have asked me what this means for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Right now, the NHS is under severe strain and children are being transferred from hospitals across London to GOSH so space in those hospitals can be freed up to focus on adults with COVID-19. 

GOSH is doubling its intensive care capacity to make sure we have room for the UK’s most seriously ill children. The hospital's incredible staff are working around the clock, under huge pressure, to guarantee children at GOSH receive the care they need in these most difficult times.

Your support of our charity means we have already been able to help meet some of the hospital’s immediate needs, such as supporting emergency staff accommodation and funding rapid COVID-19 testing equipment so we can ensure the safety of the hospital's patients and staff.

We urgently need to continue supporting the hospital in whatever way we can as it copes with the current crisis. We’re dealing with an unpredictable, evolving situation, with the hospital needing to react quickly to changes as they happen daily.

As the safety of our supporters and staff is paramount, we’ve put many of our usual fundraising events and activities on hold. Your donations at this time will therefore make an enormous difference and allow us to continue providing vital support to staff, patients and their families in this difficult time and beyond. 

Right now, we need your help as, together with the rest of the NHS, GOSH battles the COVID-19 crisis. You can donate now, easily and quickly, by clicking here.

We want to say a huge, heartfelt thank you for all the support you’re giving GOSH. 

They need us and we need you, now, more than ever.
