UCLH Private Healthcare has launched a new paediatric and adolescent allergy service which is available to young people from birth to the age of 25. The service will provide a comprehensive diagnostic programme to pinpoint specific allergens, and tailored treatment plans that address unique needs.

Clinics will take place in University College Hospital’s highly accessible central London location, and will be delivered alongside UCLH’s highly successful NHS allergy service, which attracts patients from across the UK.

“We have a compassionate and specialised multidisciplinary staff dedicated to understanding and treating allergies in children”, said consultant paediatrician and expert in children’s allergies, Dr Dalbir Sohi. “This includes consultants, senior paediatric allergy nurses, a highly specialised paediatric allergy dietitian and play therapists. We also work in close collaboration with other specialists across UCLH, including paediatric gastroenterologists, dermatologists, ENT, and respiratory specialists to ensure that children benefit from a comprehensive continuity of care that can rarely be provided by other private providers.”

“Our paediatric allergy service is just one of several new private services we are looking to launch at UCLH”, said Director of Private Healthcare, Kerensa Heffron, “This is a really exciting time for us, and we hope to share news of even more new services soon.”
