Are UK children with allergies receiving consistent and adequate care?

New research in Clinical & Experimental Allergy indicates that over the past 15 years, the number of allergy clinics for children in the UK has increased 4-fold and the number of appointments has increased 7-fold.

Most paediatric allergy clinics are relatively small, and they vary in offering some services such as allergen immunotherapy.

“This has been the first comprehensive assessment of paediatric allergy services ever undertaken. The survey was undertaken to be a resource for patients and for professionals, and the information gathered is going to help improve services in the years to come,” said senior author Michael R. Perkin, MD, of the University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the University of London.
