Great Ormond Street Hospital is world-renowned for its children's medical care. It is based in the Bloomsbury district of London, close to the University College London campus, which it is closely associated with and resides in a stunning, Victorian red brick building. It is pioneering in its healthcare and has had many notable patrons, fundraisers and supporters, including J.M. Barrie, author of Peter Pan, who donated the rights to the play to the hospital, which continues to help fundraising efforts today through royalties. 

 

The hospital had an inauspicious start, opening on Valentine's Day 1852, with just 10 beds. Dr Charles West had been shocked by the high level of infant mortality in the city and was eager to help. At this time in history, one third of all children born in London died before they reached adulthood, so it was clear that this problem needed to be addressed. 

 

St Giles Hotel in the West End London

The hospital quickly became well known and soon patrons were stepping forward to offer their help, including Charles Dickens, well known for his philanthropic activities, who became a close friend of Dr West and helped to raise £3,000 (a fortune in Victorian times), which allowed the hospital to expand. Queen Victoria was also happy to give the hospital her patronage, and in a time when the monarchy were idolised by the public, many wealthy residents followed suit.

 

The hospital has survived bombings in World War II and was rebuilt after matchboxes full of the rubble from the building were sold and in 1987 the hospital launched the Wishing Well appeal, which was patronised by Prince Charles and Princess Diana, who helped to raise a jaw-dropping £54 million in just two years. More recent fundraising efforts have seen Queen Elizabeth, former Prime Minister Tony Blair and Victoria Beckham help to raise funds. 

 

Going to hospital might be a traumatic experience, but with its colourful wards, friendly staff and programmes where free toys are handed out to sick children, Great Ormond Street provides a relaxing, lively atmosphere to keep sick children's spirits up. The hospital has over 192,000 patients a year, with many patients referred from overseas, including a famous case where Indian conjoined twins were successfully separated in 2011. The hospital has over 50 clinical specialties including heart problems, brain surgery and gene therapy and promotes education of pioneering treatments. They are a hospital that truly cares and since the Victorian times they have saved many lives, so if your child is sick, there is no better place to bring them.
