List of UK allergy services clinics

The number of people living with an allergy in the UK is on the increase with around 20 million people having a disease where allergy may be involved and up to 7 million who may require the care of a specialist allergist. According to Allergy UK there is approximately just one allergy specialist to every 700,000 allergy sufferers in the UK.

The scale of the social and economic impact on children and adults who are affected by allergies along with their families should not be underestimated. The cost alone in primary care for the NHS is estimated to be close to £1bn per year. However these costs could be mitigated with improved allergy services since much allergic disease is preventable or controllable if patients have access to specific allergy diagnosis, management and support in addition to being able to identify and avoid allergy triggers.

In addition since allergy patients are currently referred to different organ based specialists by GPs, they may end up seeing several different consultants at different clinics when what they really want is a holistic view and treatment of the allergy as a single issue. The current approach duplicates cost and is inefficient and wasteful of NHS resources.

Despite some progress on improving the services offered to allergy suffers through the health service the provision and level of care that patients receive can vary across the UK between different health trusts.

According to Royal College of Physicians (RCP) there is a geographical inequality and national shortage of doctors with allergy expertise. GPs dealing with the brunt of allergic disease have limited training and access to specialist advice.

Following calls and papers by various bodies including RCP, the National Allergy Strategy Group (NASG)  and British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology, the government appears to be in favour of the move towards creating  a core initial infrastructure of regional allergy centres with a minimum of 1 for each population of 5 – 7 million people in order to provide better allergy services for both adults and children.

Improving Quality in Allergy Services (IQAS) is the accreditation scheme set up in 2011 for adult allergy services in the UK. There is currently 1 NHS Trust offering an accredited allergy service and 21 NHS Trusts which are registered for the scheme and working towards accreditation.

In addition to this there is provision of some allergy services for both children and adults in most NHS Trusts as shown in the list of UK allergy services clinics table below which has links to the Trust in their relevant regions.
