Allergy Clinic - Midlands

As the allergy lead for one of the biggest paediatric allergy clinics in the Midlands, seeing over 3000 children and young people per year, you can be sure that you are in experienced hands if you book an appointment to be assessed for an allergy or allergy related disease.
I have developed the paediatric allergy clinic at Sandwell and West Birmingham Hopsitals over the last decade to be one of the most innovative and progressive services available. Recognition of this outstanding achievement has been recognised with my European Association of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) accredtation as a Paediatric Allergist and also most recently by my appointment to the Chair of the Paediatric allergy Committee of the British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI)
I can offer you that expertise in a relaxed private setting. I am able to assess and treat allergy and allergy related disorders including food allergy, asthma, eczema, urticaria (hives) and hayfever.
I look forward to meeting you and your child
