In addition, some clinics also include dietetic input to discuss dietary
management alongside medical interventions. As part of future development, the
department will aim to provide dietetic support for all one stop clinics

appropriately trained nurses.
Allergy service offering from WHHT is more specialised compared to other DGH’s.
The lead consultant is an accredited Allergist and over the past 12 months, a
clinical and business strategy has been developed in order to streamline the
service and make it more efficient. As part of the clinical strategy, closer
working relationships with primary care have been developed with clinical
pathways as well as training and support provided to GPs in order to ensure
that more allergic conditions can be better managed within the community
We are looking for an
experienced allergy nurse who is both motivated and a dynamic individual, an
excellent communicator and an effective team player whilst having the knowledge
and skills to work independently.
