About GOSH (Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity)

Every day, around 600 children and young people from across the UK arrive at GOSH. Every day, doctors and nurses battle the most complex illnesses, and the brightest minds come together to achieve pioneering medical breakthroughs. And every day is a chance for you to make a difference.

This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfill their potential. A better future for seriously ill children starts here.

Great Ormond Street Hospital (then known as The Hospital for Sick Children) opened its doors at 49 Great Ormond Street on Valentine's Day 1852 with 10 beds.

It has since become one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, housing the widest range of specialists under one roof.

Prior to becoming part of the NHS in 1948, GOSH was known as a voluntary hospital, running fundraising campaigns for new buildings from the 1850s onwards.

In the early decades of the NHS, private fundraising was heavily restricted, but the hospital was allowed to continue receiving legacies.

In 1982, the government relaxed restrictions on charitable fundraising by individual hospitals. This allowed GOSH to initiate the hugely successful national Wishing Well Appeal of 1987–8, which raised £54 million to fund the Variety Club Building.

Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity became a separate legal entity from the hospital in 1998.

Jersey Hospice Care

Many people think that hospices are places of sadness focused on death and dying. In fact, our focus is on well-being and living well.

Our care is about so much more than the specialist palliative treatment of a person’s physical symptoms. It’s a total philosophy of care, offering spiritual and emotional support that extends to family members and carers. For each person we are privileged to care for, we only get one chance at the end of life to get it right and that’s why we strive every day to go that extra mile for our patients and their families, to make extraordinary care our ‘ordinary’. Helping each person we care for to get the best out of every day and to make each day count.

Jersey Hospice Care provides specialist palliative care to all those with a life limiting illness. As a result, over half of the patients we now care for do not have cancer.

Jersey Hospice Care is a registered charity and makes no charge to patients. The annual cost to run our charitable services in 2021 was in excess of £5.9 million (£16,400 per day). Funding for our care services is thanks to the generosity of islanders.
