Fact Fiction Friday ~ Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH!)

Continuing our new and regular feature here at Historical Fiction.  

Each Friday we will publish an historical fact based upon the date. Each fact will be accompanied by a book(s) title and perhaps a review or other snippet.

The Remarkable Story of Great Ormond Street…

14th February 1852 ~
Great Ormond Street Hospital became the first hospital to provide inpatient beds specifically for children in London (The National Children's Hospital in Dublin had been established in 1821).

The book to accompany today's fact is The Remarkable Story of Great Ormond Street Hospital by Kevin Telfer.

  1. Even in the back of beyond I've heard about this hospital. It has to be a good book.
