The Allergy and Clinical Immunology Unit is a regional centre serving the population of Surrey, Berkshire and neighbouring areas. The unit functions as a network based across several NHS Trusts in the region, including the Royal Surrey, Frimley Health and Ashford & St Peters, and provides clinical services in several locations.
Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, outpatient clinic appointments are continuing as usual but the majority are being done virtually by phone or online. If testing or treatment is required in hospital, these are still proceeding as usual, but with additional precautions being taken due to the pandemic. Any tests or treatment that is required will be discussed with you by the clinical team before they are booked.
Adult immunodeficiency service
This service is for adults (from the age of 16 years) who have a deficiency or weakness of their immune system. We see people with recurrent, severe, unusual or persistent infections when an immunodeficiency is suspected, although many people who suffer from recurrent infections have a completely normal immune system.
We also provide immunoglobulin replacement therapy as well as home therapy services for people on immunoglobulin treatment and with hereditary angioedema.
Immunodeficiency clinics take place on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
