To help us diagnose and treat patients we see, we run a range of clinics:

This clinic provides assessment and investigation of chronic urticaria.
Drug allergy clinic (including general anaesthetic)
We provide assessment and investigation of potentially IgE mediated reactions, including reactions to general and local anaesthetics.
Providing desensitisation therapy to a range of inhalant allergens, wasp and bee venom. We do this by using either injection immunotherapy treatment or treatment under the tongue.

In addition, we provide training in the use of adrenalin for self-injection.
Auto immune disease clinic
We provide assessment of patients with potentially auto-immune conditions, including vasculitis and auto-inflammatory conditions.
Hereditary angioedema clinic
We diagnose hereditary angioedema and provide treatment and advice including long-term preventative medicine and acute treatment of attacks.
