Our full service allergy unit enables the holistic examination and treatment of a patient with allergic symptoms in co-operation with multiple specialties.
The specialties in our unit include dermatology, pulmonary diseases, clinical physiology, ear, nose and throat diseases, occupational medicine and paediatrics.
You need a doctor's
referral to be admitted.
A clinic fee is collected for a visit. A continuing treatment fee is collected from desensitisation and anti-IgE therapy receiving patients.
The quality standards of the skin testing in our allergy unit were audited in autumn 2013.
We participate actively in studies where new treatments are developed for, for example, food allergies.
