Paul O’Gorman Patient Hotel
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we contributed £2 million to develop the Paul O’Gorman Patient Hotel in 2003 / 2004.
The Hospital has placed a growing emphasis on the development of its day care services so that children don’t need to be admitted unnecessarily. This has great benefits for children being treated for cancer.
There are times during treatment when admission is necessary, but much of the treatment can be given on an outpatient basis.
Trips to and from hospital take up a great deal of time and energy. However, young patients are not separated from family and friends as they would be during a prolonged hospital admission.
Great Ormond Street has a wide catchment area and many families have to travel significant distances for their appointments. Which is where the Patient Hotel comes in.
