Help with medical appointments and hospital stays

Travelling to appointments

Great Ormond Street Hospital

If your child or young person has an appointment at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), visit GOSH to find help with:

Other help available for transport costs

Hospital passports

If your child needs to go to hospital either as an inpatient or outpatient, we recommend you complete a hospital passport (PDF).

This gives staff important information about your child and can help make appointments and hospital stays run smoothly.

If your child has autism, there is a specific hospital passport for autistic people which helps parents tell the doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals about their child's needs.

Acute liaison nurses

Most hospitals have an acute liaison nurse, who can work with staff to help them understand the needs of your child. They can also advise what reasonable adjustments (PDF) are needed to make your child's hospital stay as comfortable as possible.
