The allergy service at Guy's Hospital is one of only 5 full-time allergy centres in the UK.

We are one of the busiest and largest allergy centres. We are recognised as a centre of excellence by the Department of Health.

We see mainly outpatients. We'll see patients who are on the wards.

Our service is provided by consultants. They have experience in:

  • allergy
  • immune system
  • respiratory (breathing) medicine

We also have:  

  • junior doctors
  • specialist NHS allergy nurses
  • an allergy dietitian


Your allergy drug and food challenges will take place in the allergy day care unit (ADCU).

Research and clinical trials

Research is vital to improving the care that you receive when you're unwell. You can help improve healthcare by taking part in research studies at our Trust. During your appointment, ask your healthcare professional about research. They'll be happy to tell you about research studies you could be eligible to join.
