GREAT Or­mond Street Hospi­tal (GOSH) was founded on 14 Fe­bru­ary 1852 and was called the Hospi­tal for Sick Chil­dren at first. The Lon­don hospi­tal started with just ten beds but is now one of the world’s lead­ing chil­dren’s hos­pi­tals. To­day, more than 268,000 pa­tients visit ev­ery year. GOSH has been sup­ported by some no­table peo­ple through­out its his­tory, in­clud­ing JM Bar­rie (who wrote Peter Pan), Charles Dick­ens and Queen Vic­to­ria.
