Meet the Immunology team

The Immunology team at Great Ormond Street Hospital includes consultants, specialist nurses, junior doctors, psychologists, ward nurses and play specialists.

Most outpatient care is supervised by a lead consultant working in collaboration with specialist nurses, while the other members of the team are involved in any day-case or inpatient stays. Other specialists closely involved with the department include social workers, dieticians and physiotherapists.
