Over 25 per cent of calls to our Helpline calls are relate to food allergy, this has increased by 5% since last year. To provide clinical support to all these callers, Allergy UK has an established a Clinical Dietitian Advisor Clinic. That provides a weekly clinic to calls escalated from the Helpline for dietetic advice, appointments are given for a one-to-one discussion with the dietitian, with a letter written to the GP if necessary.

Our dedicated helpline advisors offer valuable information to callers throughout the UK. Their assistance encompasses, but is not limited to, guiding callers to Allergy UK’s extensive resources and fact sheets, referring patients to our dietitian services when necessary, or, at times, simply lend a compassionate ear. Additionally, our helpline can also assist in connecting callers with leading allergy specialists provided by the health advisory board when specialised consultation is required.
