Paediatric Allergy Testing

Dr Gillian Vance (GMC number 3669370)  offers a comprehensive private allergy service within the facilities of the Great North Children’s Hospital out-patient department (The Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust). As one of a small number of allergy specialists in the UK, Dr Vance looks after children with all types of allergy problems including food allergy, anaphylaxis, asthma, allergic rhinitis (hayfever), eczema, urticaria and drug allergy.

Clinical evidence shows that there are more and more children with allergies, and that these problems are becoming more complex. Hence, there is an increasing need for the provision of allergy services for parents and children that take account of the latest developments in diagnostic testing and treatment options. Dr Vance offers a diagnostic and management service for patients with possible allergic symptoms for both insured and uninsured patients. This service complements the services available through the NHS. Clinics are for children from birth to 16. Patients must  be reffered by their General Practitioner, Nurse Practitioner in a Health Centre or another hospital consultant.
