Strike action is taking place across our services from Saturday 24 February to Wednesday 28 February. We'll contact your directly if your or your child's care is affected. We're sorry for any distress that delays to your care may cause.

Allergy referrals

We are a specialist allergy service providing a holistic diagnostic and therapeutic service for children with allergic disease from around the UK.

Our active research programme ensures our patients have early access to the latest therapeutics.

Our consultants are always happy to discuss clinical problems and possible referrals so please do not hesitate to get in touch.

This service is suitable for patients up to 16 years of age and is for urgent and routine referrals only.

Who can refer

GPs and other secondary services.

How to refer

GP referrals

Due to high demand for our clinics, the Trust has agreed with CCGs to restrict e-RS access to GP practices in the following boroughs:

  • Greenwich
  • Bromley
  • Bexley
  • Lewisham
  • Croydon
  • Southwark
  • Lambeth
  • Westminster
  • Hackney
  • Wandsworth

This is so we can provide faster, safer access to local patients.

All NHS GP referrals must be submitted using the NHS e-Referral service.

Referrals sent to the nhs.net mailbox or by post from GPs will not be processed.

Tertiary referrals

Tertiary referrals can be emailed to gst-tr.AllergyPaediatrics@nhs.net
