What we do 

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is an international centre of excellence in child healthcare. At GOSH, we are dedicated to helping children from around the world to fulfil their potential. We are globally recognised as pioneers in the treatment and care of children with multiple, rare or complex conditions.  

With more than 60 specialities, the hospital has the broadest range of dedicated children’s healthcare specialists in the UK. Due to this specialist nature and the breadth of its services, GOSH treats children from all parts of the country and overseas within the International and Private Patient service (IPP).  

Together with the UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health we form Europe's largest academic centre for research and education in children's health and disease. We train more paediatric specialist doctors than any other centre in Europe and have Europe’s largest nurse education programme. 

Our ethos 

We are passionate about our promise to put the Child First and Always, through that, achieving our shared aim of delivering world-class care.  We strive to live by our ‘always’ values: Always Welcoming, Always Helpful, Always Expert and Always One Team. Our aim is to set world-class standards in every aspect of the service we provide.   

At GOSH, our staff ensure that children, young people and families receive the highest quality of care and support. Our nursing structure, and our commitment to professional development, enable us to provide quality care that meets the individual and complex needs of each child and young person. 

Professional development 

GOSH aspires to provide career development opportunities for all staff, and our Education Team are here to help and encourage you to further your training and education.  

Our portfolio of learning activities enables staff to acquire a breadth of knowledge and skills which supports them to deliver a safe, high quality and effective service to patients and families. Our learning activities also provide staff with the chance to develop their competence and confidence in forging a successful career. 

For newly qualified nurses we offer a 12-month Preceptorship Programme.
