Now and next

Our ambitious redevelopment programme aims to rebuild two-thirds of the Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) site over a 20-year period.

Phase 3 – Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children

Phase 3 of our redevelopment programme is the creation of the Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children. This will be a world-class multidisciplinary centre of excellence that will bring together clinicians from GOSH and researchers from UCL’s Institute of Child Health and Institute of Cardiovascular Science.

Using leading-edge technologies, the centre will focus on better understanding rare diseases and rapidly translating these findings into new treatments for our patients.

The new purpose-built research centre will house laboratories, manufacturing facilities, research write-up areas and meeting rooms for scientists and medical teams to progress their work.

The development will also provide much-needed outpatient clinical space, completing the translational research circle from pure research to practical patient treatment.

Construction began in 2015 and is due to be completed in 2018.

Phase 4 – Design consultation for a new clinical building on Great Ormond Street

GOSH is running a competition in partnership with the Royal Institute of British Architects to select a team to work with us in developing design proposals for a new clinical building on Great Ormond Street. We are working towards submitting an application for planning permission in mid-2018 and, subject to approval, starting construction in late 2019.
