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. In addition, information packs and leaflets covering the whole spectrum of allergy-related illness are available.
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.
It is estimated that 21 million people in the UK live with allergic disease. But there remains a huge gap in healthcare services for those affected by this disease of the immune system. Our mission is to raise the profile of allergy at all levels, with a vision for everyone affected by allergy to receive the best possible care and support.
Our Helpline advisors deal with thousands of enquiries every year. The team includes in-house clinical experts who can help with more complex questions. They can also refer enquiries to members of our Health Advisory Board, which includes internationally recognised experts in the fields of allergy and immunology.
Our website is home to our free Factsheets covering all aspects of allergic disease and a number of resources developed to support people living with allergy allergyuk.org.
