Dr Maity specialises in acute paediatrics, food allergies, asthma, rhinitis, eczema and urticaria. He has been working at the Royal Free Hospital since 2007 and sees over 100 children a month.

Dr Maity supervises the Children’s Ward at the NHS, he carries out ambulatory & ward reviews, and his primary responsibilities are to create the medium to long term care plans for inpatients and ambulatory patients. He assesses all cases on the ward referred by social services for child protection concerns. He works for out-patients at specialist clinics in paediatric allergy in a multidisciplinary setting, with dieticians and specialist nurses. Dr Maity oversees food challenges and helps patients start immunotherapy.

Dr Maity is also the long day and night consultant in accident & emergency and has the primary responsibility for assessment and initial management of children presenting to acute service in A&E. Dr Maity developed an interest in paediatric allergy after his specialist registrar training. He is the lead for this service at the Royal Free Hospital.

Dr Maity completed a post-graduate diploma in allergy. In 2008, Dr Maity and his department set up a new paediatric allergy service which now has been approved as a tertiary centre.
