We've opened our (digital) doors – come in and visit us in virtual space.

To help celebrate our 167th birthday, we're sharing a behind-the-scenes look at the hospital through our 360° video. Bring the hospital into your own home to see the impact Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) has on the young people we treat. 

The experience allows new patients, or their families, to explore spaces in the hospital before they are admitted.

The areas of the hospital that feature are:

  1. Main entrance and reception
  2. The hospital’s urology centre – Eagle Ward bay area and a patient bedroom on cardiac ward Bear Ward
  3. The chapel
  4. Two surgical theatres 
  5. Research labs
  6. The Turtle Imaging Suite and control room
  7. A play room (Eagle Ward) and sensory room (Panther Ward)
