Extraordinary children

The International Service at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) cares for seriously ill children from around the world. Our team of nurses provide lifesaving care for extraordinary children who would otherwise be unable to receive it in their home countries.

Our nurses treat children with rare and complex conditions from over 80 countries around the world every year. Every patient is unique, regardless of nationality.

My favourite thing about being a nurse is when you are able to make a child or family member smile, despite being at hospital. Of course, seeing a family go home at the end of their treatment journey is very special. Being part of that journey is amazing.

Our patients are extraordinary and inspire us to be extraordinary as well.
