The Allergy Academy is invaluable in providing much needed training days on allergic conditions for health care professionals such as doctors, nurses and dietitians. These courses have been made available to our helpline advisors and have furthered them in the knowledge of allergic disease enabling them to provide a better service to people seeking help from our charity.
Our allergy educational meetings have already been attended by thousands of doctors. We carefully collect evaluation data from all our events to ensure that we are continually improving our content and delivery. Here are a selection of recent comments from events:
Lindsey McManus, Deputy Chief Executive, Allergy UK
The Allergy Academy is an excellent initiative as it enables top quality teaching and resources to be available to clinicians .This inevitably has a direct impact on the quality of care provided to patients. It also provides support to our patient support group by sharing knowledge and encouraging clinicians to work with us.

I gained invaluable knowledge from excellent educators, which has since helped me to set up my practice back home and given a real boost to my career.

All the doctors and nurses in the paediatric allergy deparment taught me not only how to see patients, but also how to do some research. I really appreciated that.
