THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE WILL VISIT GREAT ORMOND STREET HOSPITAL
Wednesday, 17th January 2018
The Duchess of Cambridge will visit Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) on Wednesday 17 January to officially open the Mittal Children’s Medical Centre, home to the new Premier Inn Clinical Building.
The new Premier Inn Clinical Building completes The Mittal Children’s Medical Centre and is
part of the ongoing redevelopment of the hospital. There is growing demand for its services
and the centre will help the hospital to provide world-class care to more children and will
increase its patient capacity. The Centre delivers the hospital’s vision of providing modern
facilities for its acute inpatients and will see children moved out of old facilities into brand
new, modern wards with ensuite bedrooms where parents or carers can stay comfortably
overnight by their child’s bedside.
On the day, The Duchess will visit two separate wards. Her Royal Highness will join some of
the hospital’s patients in the children’s play room and meet patients and their families to
hear about their experience of the brand new facilities. She will also meet staff caring for
these children and talk to clinicians carrying out cutting edge research to help the most
seriously ill children.
Following the visit to the wards, The Duchess will meet some of Great Ormond Street
Hospital Charity’s key supporters and donors before officially opening the Mittal Children’s
Medical Centre and Premier Inn Clinical Building.
