Longwood House Dental Care are also now proud sponsors of GOSH and representing the charity in the Essex area, Dr. Ahmed's role will be to organise fundraising activities and help engage people with the work of the hospital.
GOSH is our tertiary hospital – and helps those children that are not able to get the specialised help they need in local hospitals or nhs services. All the money raised from the event will help to rebuild and refurbish the hospital, maintaining existing services and the building of a new genetic and rare viral disease research centre ( the first of its kind in the UK)..
The Hospital constantly will need public support to help give the young patients suffering from severe and rare illnesses and their parents the emotional support they need.
