New allergy centre to pioneer services

  • Comment

North West strategic health authority has been chosen to pioneer new services for allergy sufferers.

As part of a programme of improvements being planned by the Department of Health, an allergy centre will be developed and piloted in the region as a model for the rest of the country. The new centre will be backed with £60,000 funding to support it during its first year.

The SHA will also work with patients, experts in allergy and immunology and other SHAs to create a more efficient service for those affected by allergies.

NHS North West chief executive Mike Farrar welcomed the programme. ‘The North West has a well-earned reputation for innovation in health care and our aim will be to develop world class allergy services,’ he said.

Health minister Ann Keen added: ‘Allergies affect the lives of millions of people in this country, and we are ensuring this important issue gets the recognition it deserves.’
