Got a question about allergies? Hey you’ve probably got loads! Wish you could get one-to-one time with a specialist allergy doctor? Well this week, you can.
From 21 – 27 February 2012 Action Against Allergy (AAA) and Allergy Academy have teamed up with NHS Choices and talkhealth to present an Online Clinic on Food Allergy.
Clinical experts are available to answer questions about issues surrounding food allergies, what to do if you or someone else has a reaction and to provide you with valuable help and guidance.
Action Against Allergy provides information, advice and support to those made chronically ill through the many different forms of allergy and those who care for them. Campaigning for expert diagnosis and treatment to be available to all through the National Health Service.
Their ‘Find a Doctor’ service provides personalised advice on the nearest allergy specialist and membership benefits include an informative journal three times a year. In addition, information packs and leaflets covering the whole spectrum of allergy-related illness are available.
Allergy Academy is an initiative of King’s College London and was formed as a response to the shortcomings in Allergy education highlighted by the House of Lords report into UK Allergy Services.
The aim of the Academy is to deliver high quality educational opportunities and provide a broad based, comprehensive programme that will serve the full range of people who are currently demanding it – patients, parents, nurses, dieticians, general and specialist physicians.
The Academy programme is focused on offering practical courses which will help develop the practice of the large number of different health care professionals who deal with allergic patients every day.
