Alex meets Nurse Cara Low on Sky Ward.

Journalist and presenter Alex Brooker is a former Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) patient, and is best known for co-hosting Channel 4’s comedy panel show The Last Leg, which started airing during the 2012 Summer Paralympic Games. Here, Alex shares his memories of GOSH and tells us what it was like to revisit the hospital recently.

Edward at GOSH

Edward was diagnosed with life-threatening meningitis and osteomyelitis when he was just 13 months old, and came to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) for treatment. Mum Claire shares their story.

Max and Jenny baking

Max was born with a hole in his heart and was transferred at birth to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Max has received treatment at GOSH for six years and, this October, will be helping us to go baking crazy during Bake it Better week, 13-19 October.

Sensory rooms

Sensory rooms are environments designed to stimulate the senses through the use of light, colour, sound and visual effects. Here, we find out about the vital role sensory rooms play for patients and their families at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Bill's mud cake

This October we’d like you to dust off your aprons and oven gloves, get busy in the kitchen and hold a bake sale to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Bake it Better week takes place from 13-19 October, and you can register your interest now to receive a free Bake it Better fundraising pack to help you raise some dough.

Dr Shah

Cow’s milk allergy (CMA) is a common food allergy among children in the UK. Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Consultant Paediatric Gastroenterologist Dr Neil Shah was part of a team that developed national guidelines to help quickly recognise and treat the allergy, improving the lives of young children and their families.

Charlie and mum Mel

Mel and her son Charlie, age 7, were both diagnosed last year with CAPS (Cryopyrin-Associated Periodic Syndrome), a rare inherited and auto inflammatory disease. Charlie is treated here at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). Mel and Charlie share their story.

Maya and her mum Sylwia

Last year, thanks to a new technique allowing patients to receive kidneys from incompatible donors, ten-year-old Maya underwent a successful operation at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) to transplant her father’s kidney. This October, Maya will be helping us raise some dough during Bake it Better week, 13-19 October.
