Sheffield Children's Hospital - Paediatric Allergy Clinic

Children are at the centre of what we do and hence we believe safety and quality of life go hand in hand. We liaise with schools and nurseries and are actively involved in working with primary care to enhance allergy care.

We believe in managing all atopic diseases within the allergy service but for those complex patients requiring additional care then we offer parallel clinics with our dermatologists, respiratory team and gastroenterologists. We also work closely with the eye and ear,nose and throat doctors to make sure we offer allergen avoidance advice as well as medication.

We are part of the Yorkshire and Humber Paediatric Allergy Group which provides support to all hospitals within the region to ensure consistent delivery of allergy services.
