Allergies are a major public health concern in the UK, with rates of allergy increasing and a shortage of consultants who specialise in this area. Asthma and food allergy can be life-threatening; conditions such as allergic rhinitis and eczema, whilst not obviously as severe, can have medical consequences and a significant effect on quality of life and educational achievement. This course aims to educate GPs about the various presentations of allergic disease, how to assess an atopic patient and when to investigate in primary care or refer to secondary care.

This course was developed in partnership with Thermo Fisher Scientific.
