Oh GOSH, No! Survey Result


The numbers are in; the result is clear.

The SurveyMonkey survey of views about GOSH and their proposed new Children’s Cancer Centre show a massive rejection of GOSH's expansion plans.  Not only the building, but the way they're currently intending to do about it.

91% thought the size and scale of GOSH’s proposed building was “Unacceptable”.
93% objected” to GOSH’s planning application.
The programme of works was extremely unpopular with respondents. 95% were “Very Unhappy” or “Unhappy” with GOSH’s proposals.
88% felt GOSH should have considered new alternative sites rather than a new building at Great Ormond Street.93% of respondents said the local community had not
properly consulted or involved in the design given the scale of the scheme.

In the broadest terms, almost everyone who took part in the survey had the highest opinion of GOSH’s clinical work but a large majority said that the proposed Children’s Cancer Centre building was completely inappropriate, and that GOSH’s consultation with the local community about it has been seriously inadequate.
