Paediatric Allergy Dietitian
Ruth qualified from Queen Margaret University in 2006 and took up her first post at Glasgow Royal Infirmary, covering inpatients. In 2007 Ruth moved to Hillingdon Hospital and it was here she first developed her interest in Paediatrics.
After a spell in a community post in Islington, looking after 6 special schools, she joined St Mary's Hospital in 2009. During her five years at St Mary's Ruth was the lead paediatric allergy dietitian and her passion for the subject saw her undertake the Allergy MSc at Imperial, which she completed in 2014.
Ruth has recently joined the Allergy Team at St Thomas'. She is a clinical dietitian with an appetite for research and has had abstracts and posters accepted at National and International conferences.
