Help your child enjoy a hospital visit!

AGSD-UK Autumn Family Days

You can help your child with a GSD to enjoy a hospital visit.

Families attending either Great Ormond Street Hospital or Birmingham Children’s Hospital for GSD are welcome to come along to family days this autumn.

Connecting a community

AGSD-UK offers these days because we are trying to connect a community that is very spread out and often quite isolated. We also know that children with a GSD and their siblings benefit from relaxed and fun experiences at a hospital they usually only visit for assessment and treatment.

One consultant specifically noticed that children were more engaged and talkative at clinics after the Family Day we ran.

  • Birmingham – Saturday 19th October. POSTPONED, new date to follow.
  • Great Ormond Street – Saturday 9th November.

Lots of fun and time to talk

As usual we will have face-paints, entertainers and crafts. Families have time to talk, meet others and share ideas and worries.

Nurses and dietitians will be there to offer advice.
