Allergies affect around 30% of the adult population and 40% of children. This means that one in three adults in the UK will suffer from an allergy at some point in their lives.
Allergies are treatable and manageable. The most important clinical intervention is to establish a diagnosis. This is mainly carried out by performing an allergy test which then enables the correct treatment to be identified.
At Spencer Private Hospitals, we currently have one excellent Consultant Allergist: Dr Ola Smith.
Dr Ola Smith is a Paediatric Consultant in East Kent and Honorary Consultant in Paediatric Allergy at Kings College Hospital, London in 2002.
We can treat many allergic conditions such as:
- Food allergy
- Drug allergy
- Venom allergy (Bee and Wasp)
- Seasonal and Perennial Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)
- Urticaria (Hives and Nettle Rash)
In addition to our Allergy Clinic, we have a dietician that offers an in depth assessment of symptoms, diet and medical history to guide a suspected diagnosis of food intolerance.
