We investigate, diagnose and treat:

  • severe hay fever resistant to drug therapy using desensitisation (immunotherapy)
  • suspected immunodeficiency – persistent, severe or recurrent infections with unusual organisms
  • primary immunodeficiency – hypogammaglobulaemias, hereditary angioedema etc
  • hay fever – seasonal allergic rhinitis and conjunctivitis
  • perennial rhinitis – symptom: permanent cold
  • food allergy
  • drug allergy
  • urticaria/angioedema

We also evaluate the immunological or allergic contribution to multisystem, polysymptomatic or non-specific illnesses.
