You may like to promote our talk to your group using the following information.

In 1852, Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) opened with just 10 beds - it was the first hospital in the UK to offer dedicated inpatient care to children. Now nearly 170 years later GOSH is still one of the world's leading children's hospitals.

Every day, 618 seriously ill children arrive at the hospital and 53 children undergo life-changing operations.

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity) raises money to help the hospital provide world class care and to pioneer new treatments and cures for childhood illnesses. This talk will give you more information about this amazing hospital and its incredible staff, brave patients and their families.

We hope that you are interested in booking a talk. Please complete the form below and we will be in touch. We hope to respond to your request within 5–10 working days.

We do not set any speaker’s fee or require travel expenses to be reimbursed, but any donation your group feels able to make to help our young patients would be truly appreciated. Donation cheques should be made payable to ‘GOSH Charity’.
