Adult allergy outpatient and day case services

Image of adult allergy team

We provide outpatient clinics and inpatient facilities for the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disease. We run approximately 8 outpatient clinics per week, covering the different specialist areas. Patients who require specific tests for drug and food allergy diagnosis are admitted as "day cases" to either the medical day unit (MDU) or the Startlight Unit in the case of children.
Our multidisciplinary approach means patients have access to physiologists, dieticians as well as clinicians and nurse specialists.
