Dr Karyn Moshal has worked at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) as a Consultant in Paediatric Infectious Diseases since 2004.

I feel extraordinarily lucky to work as part of a supportive and accomplished team of professionals in Infectious Diseases. The range of patients we see and the challenges they present every day makes life constantly interesting. Being able to make a difference in children’s lives is a privilege.
