GOSH Data Research, Innovation and Virtual Environments (DRIVE) Unit

Our new report explains how this first-of-its-kind unit has led to improvements in research and innovation, and care for children and young people with serious and complex health conditions. 

Our healthcare system must leverage data and digital technologies to improve the outcomes for and experience of patients and their carers. This can also help to support healthcare staff.

“Children and young people have been brought up with technology. They are the key to co-creation and future success of technology in healthcare. We are excited by the work of the GOSH DRIVE unit that is exploring the potential for technologies, like artificial intelligence to improve care for children and young people, and support healthcare staff.


We hope the unique combination of researchers, clinicians, and young people brought together through the GOSH DRIVE unit means new technologies that are always human-centred, empathetic, and safe can be introduced to healthcare as well as being reviewed by children and young people in the future.” – Oceiah Annesley, GOSH Young Persons Advisory Group for research member 

Looking ahead

The DRIVE unit has been pivotal in introducing innovation to the Trust. Our projects have supported staff to voice their ideas and find solutions, accelerated clinical data research, and demonstrated how the NHS can work with industry partners.


As a pioneer in innovation, it was expected that we would make mistakes and even experience failures. We have shared these here to support other organisations on their innovation journeys. We will take these valuable learnings into our future areas of work.
