Dr Ajith Prasad

Consultant in Paediatric Allergy

MBBS, DCH, MD, FRCPCH, PG Cert in Allergy

"have heard many good things from my colleagues about working at Spire Hospital. I hope I could be part of the plans to expand the Paediatric Allergy service there."

I am a Consultant Paediatrician with more than 20 years' experience in dealing with various paediatric health problems. I specialise in managing medical problems in children aged 0-18 years with special expertise in managing allergic conditions.

I am experienced in managing a wide range of medical problems in children. I also deal with the diagnosis and management of various allergic conditions in children, including food allergy, hay fever, eczema and chronic urticaria.

In my current job I do consultations for more than 500 children with various allergic conditions per year. I also perform regular skin prick tests to diagnose various allergic conditions.

I hold a Consultant position at Epsom and St Helier NHS Trust and specialise in paediatric allergy. I am a fellow of the Royal College of Paediatrics and child health and a member of the British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
