Since its formation in 1852, Great Ormond Street Hospital has been dedicated to providing the finest care to desperately sick children. The hospital now receives more than 200,000 patient visits every year from children all over the UK and abroad.

Whilst the NHS funds the day-to-day running of the hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity must raise at least £50 million each year to help the hospital maintain its position as a world-class centre of excellence in paediatric treatment, training and research. The Charity raises funds for the urgently needed redevelopment of the hospital, research into new and better treatments, highly specialised paediatric equipment and welfare services and accommodation for our patients and their families.
