This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential. A better future for seriously ill children starts here.
Lifeline Winter 2016
In our winter edition of Lifeline, we discover how GOSH helps families be together at Christmas.
Our cover story features former patient Amelia, who gave her family the best present ever, by opening her eyes on Christmas day after her heart surgery. Amelia’s family remained at GOSH over the festive period in 2009, but were able to stay in patient accommodation, allowing them to all be together for Christmas day.
Please donate to our Christmas appeal to help more seriously-ill children at GOSH over Christmas. You can also send a festive message of hope to the children on our wards over Christmas, to let them know you are thinking of them.
Guest editor Joseph grills Dr Yates about what it is like to be a consultant in paediatric cardiology at GOSH, and why equipment like echocardiogram machines are essential to his life-saving work.
We also reveal our ambitious research strategy, which will ensure that GOSH remains at the forefront of paediatric medicine, allowing generations of children to reach their full potential.
Our world-class care continues, thanks to the help of all our generous supporters like you. If you would like to make an additional donation this Christmas, please donate now.
