CLINIC SPONSORS

Green People

Green People has pioneered Organic Beauty for over 20 years and is passionate about providing customers with a diverse choice of certified organic products whilst minimising the impact doing so has on the environment.

Founded by a mother determined to soothe her infant daughter’s skin allergies with natural skin care formulations, from the very beginning Green People has shaped the way the world sees organic beauty and provided clarity for those looking for a more natural approach to skin care, beauty and grooming. A PETA certified, cruelty-free brand, Green People was also one of the very first cosmetic companies to be certified organic by the Soil Association and is the only cosmetics company to be independently certified by three organic certification bodies.

Imutest

Currently, there are six Imutest allergy test kits available covering the most common environmental and food allergies … all have CE Mark approval for self-testing, so they can either be purchased by the patient for testing themselves in the privacy of their own home, or they can be used by a healthcare professional (e.g. private doctor, retail pharmacist, nutritionist, homeopath, etc) as part of a service to the patient in a non-laboratory setting.

Every Imutest kit offers the following features:

  • easy to perform
  • requires just a small finger/heel prick blood sample
  • reliable results … proven to be as accurate as hospital laboratory tests
  • rapid results … available within 30 mins

For further information on any of the Imutest Allergy Test Kits please see www.imutest.com

The Allergy & Free From Shows

The Allergy & Free From Shows are weekend-long events dedicated to freefrom living.

These events are all about finding ways to live a happy life, whatever your condition dictates you must be ‘free from’.

We understand this lifestyle can have a huge impact on you and those around you too, and we want to help make things easier. The Allergy & Free From Shows are your chance to discover the very best food, drink, skin care, allergy solutions, cooking classes, talks, expert advice, family fun. Leave the show smiling, with bags full of everything you need to make freefrom living better; all together in one place for three fantastic, fun-filled weekends across the year in the UK!

Action Against Allergy

A national charity founded in 1978, it campaigns for expert diagnosis and treatment to be available to all through the National Health Service and raises funds for vital research into the causes and treatment of allergic illness. Their ‘Find a Doctor’ service provides personalised advice on the nearest allergy specialist and membership benefits include an informative journal three times a year.

Allergy Academy

The King’s College London Allergy Academy was inspired by the need to provide education in allergy to everyone who wanted it – doctors, nurses, dieticians, pharmacists as well as patients and their families.

Our commitment is to provide education of the highest quality, practically focussed, tailored to the differing needs of those who want it and accessible to everyone. By improving education, our ultimate aim will always be to improve the care provided to our patients.

Academy programme is focused on offering practical courses which help develop the practice of the large number of different health care professionals who deal with allergic patients every day.
