"I 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."

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.
