Immunology and Allergy

The East Yorkshire Adult Immunology and Allergy Unit provides a comprehensive clinical service to a population of East Yorkshire and North and North East Lincolnshire as well as parts of North, West and South Yorkshire.

We consult patients with allergic and immunological conditions such as hay fever, food allergies, autoimmune diseases and immunodeficiencies. Our clinics are run by highly experienced doctors and nurse specialists and include the following:

  • General Allergy Clinics

    To investigate patients with common allergies such as hay fever, asthma, food allergy, urticaria (rash) and angioedema (swelling).

  • Allergen Immunotherapy Clinic

    To perform subcutaneous or sublingual desensitisation with allergens to patients with major inhalant and insect venom sensitivities.

  • Anaphylaxis Clinic

    To investigate patients suffering with systemic allergic reactions and provide expert training in the use of self-injectable adrenaline devices.

  • Drug Allergy Clinic

    To investigate adverse reactions to prescribed and over the counter medications.

  • General Immunology Clinic

    For patients with suspected autoimmune conditions, primary or secondary immunodeficiencies and hereditary angioedema.

  • Immunoglobulin Infusion Clinic

    To support hospital based immunoglobulin replacement therapy for patients with diagnosed antibody deficiency and to provide home therapy training to patients willing to have their immunoglobulin treatment at home.

In our day to day practice we collaborate with other departments including chest medicine, ENT, rheumatology, dermatology, gastroenterology and infectious diseases.

The work of the department is supported by a highly specialised Immunology Laboratory conducting a wide range of tests to diagnose allergic and immunological conditions.
