A number of transport strikes are due to take place in November and December. If you or your child has an appointment at one of our hospitals or community centres, please plan ahead and do all you can to attend. If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact your clinical team.

Nurses' strike action will take place on 15 and 20 December. Our emergency and time critical services will be open. We'll let you know if your appointment is affected.

Your child's appointment with our allergy service

If you would like your child to be seen by one of our specialists, he or she will need to be referred by their GP or a health professional from another hospital.

We want to make your visit to our clinic as easy and efficient as we can by combining the consultation, allergy testing and specialist input from other professionals, such as dietitians, all in one visit where possible. This may involve short periods of waiting, but removes the need for multiple visits.
