  Website offers kids healthy advice
Updated 30 May 2002, 08.10
The new health website from Great Orman Street Hospital
Great Ormond Street Hospital has launched a website aimed at kids with health questions.

GOSHKids has been put together with loads of help from child patients. They check over the info and stories before they're published, to make sure they make sense to you.

The new site contains info on a whole list of medical conditions, and there's even an '"e-mail a doctor" option if you can't find a description of your problems.

There's also a section on real life stories and experiences at hospital - written by patients themselves.

Information is important

Scott Fitzmaurice, 15, has been a patient at London's Great Ormond Street for years.

He explained why it's really important to get access to information about medical conditions that you might have.

"When I was younger there was no information available, nobody really told me what was happening. You don't know that you can ask questions," he said.

The website is split up into separate kids and teens sections, and you can check it out by going to Web Links at the top right of this page.
