Community Allergy Service

The West Essex Community Allergy Service is run by a Paediatric Dietitian and Allergy Nurse, with support from Allergy Champions in the Healthy Family Teams.

We see children with suspected or confirmed Non-IgE Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy (as well as some other foods) , as well as IgE allergy patients who have also been referred to secondary care, but require dietetic support prior to this. An appointment may include advice on management of reflux symptoms and eczema, as well as support to ensure the diet is nutritionally adequate to support normal growth and development, despite necessary restrictions.


If you already have an appointment booked with our team during the current Coronavirus situation and you are unable to attend, before you consider cancelling, we are able to offer consultations over the phone during your booked time slot.

Please contact the administration 24 hours before your appointment on 0300 247 0122, Option 3, Option 1, ensure we have your correct contact details and they will advise the clinicians.
