SUPPORTING YOU AND YOUR PATIENTS

The Allergy Team was founded to help families living with food allergies to thrive.

From the moment parents and carers suspect their child has an allergy and seek help, we are there to offer support and a welcoming community, one mum described discovering The Allergy Team as “life-changing”.

If you’d like leaflets (print or digital) for your clinic, please email us.

Our aim is to work with allergy specialists and healthcare professionals by providing follow-on support for families once they have left a GP appointment or allergy clinic.

Our resources have all be signed off by clinicians and will answer some of the practical questions that parents and carers have about living with food allergies, leaving you more time for appointments and to address clinical need.

SUPPORTING YOUR PATIENTS
