A team from University College London Hospitals (UCLH), UCL Institute for Women’s Health, Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) has won the Clinical Leadership Award in the BMJ Awards, the UK's leading medical awards which promote excellence in healthcare and recognise the inspirational work of healthcare teams across the country.
The UCLH/UCL/GOSH team operates on the abnormally developed spinal cords of babies in the womb, in what are the first surgeries of their kind in the UK.
