Women’s History Month is the perfect time to celebrate Dr C.V. Turner (House Physician) and Dr Marjorie Jukes (Assistant Casualty Medical Officer), the first female doctors employed by Great Ormond Street Hospital. They were hired in an emergency measure in the First World War after a number of members of staff were called for military service. This photo of the medical staff was taken in 1915 #fascinatingfridayfact #warheroes #womenshistorymonth #medicalfirsts #firstworldwar #medicalmarvels #femalefirsts #womeninthevanguard #pioneeringwomen

“The surgery changed Maia’s life – she was able to come off the tube feeding and started eating solid foods which she loved! About a month ago she came out of the bath and she noticed the scars on her chest from her operation. She asked me and her dad what they were; this was a really emotional moment for us as she starts to understand and ask about her condition. We told her they are her beautiful scars. Both me and my husband have had our appendixes removed so we showed her our scars and now she thinks they’re totally normal. She even showed everyone at nursery. We are really proud of her. I held a Bake it Better bake sale at work to raise money for GOSH and everyone got involved, even the managers baked cakes to sell. We had so much fun, and in a busy work environment it really helps to bring it back to what really matters. We found so many have been touched in some way by GOSH and we raised £300, which was great!” Maia was born six weeks premature with holes in her heart and a rare condition that impacts on the flow of air to and from her lungs. After pioneering surgery at GOSH, Maia is now a happy and energetic three-year-old. Maia’s mum Meera took part in Bake it Better, our bake sale fundraiser event, at her work in 2016 and is planning on getting involved again this May to help raise vital funds to support GOSH.

The hospital's Nature Trail has recently been extended to help improve the journey to the operating theatre for patients and families as they spot jumping rabbits and darting deer on their way to a procedure. 🦌🐦🐰🐸🐟🦋🐗 Going to surgery can be a difficult and anxious time. The Nature Trail – created by @jasonbruges in a collaboration with @GOSHArts – uses more than 100 LED panels hidden behind the woodland wallpaper to project creatures such as hedgehogs, frogs and birds, providing a calming distraction for patients as they journey to theatre.

Inspired by the Nature Trail, illustrator @SarahDennis_ and author @tatterhood_ have also created a story book called 'Follow the Fishes' with an activity sheet, which can be used by the hospital's Play team to prepare families for surgery.

“I was born at 26 weeks, weighing just 1lb 6oz.” says Kerry. "When I came back to GOSH I met with my surgeon. We had a cup of tea and a chat and it was very surreal to be able to thank him for saving my life. Without him, I wouldn’t be where I am today”. Today, we’ve been asking everyone to show off their #80sme to celebrate 30 years since the Wishing Well Appeal. We’ve had lots of messages over the last week from people who were patients, staff, volunteers or fundraisers for the hospital and charity in the 1980s, like Kerry. In the 80s, Kerry was a GOSH patient. Now, she’s a Healthcare Assistant on Kangaroo Ward.
