Allergy and Immunology was formed in May 2006, following the merger of the separate Allergy and Immunology groups at the hospital. There has been a rapid rise in allergic disease in the last 30 years and community demand for allergy and immunology services has reached unprecedented levels.To address this increased demand, the Department has expanded its clinical service by increasing the number of appointments available and it is investing in training of the next generation of allergy specialists to better meet the needs of the community.
Our vision is "to improve the health of children with allergic and immune disorders" through the Department's core business of "advancing knowledge, clinical practice, public health policy and research in the field of allergic and immune disorders".
Our aim to provide secondary and tertiary outpatient and inpatient care for children with allergic and immune disorders in Victoria. This includes children with food, drug, insect sting and latex allergy causing moderate to severe allergic reactions (including anaphylaxis), eczema, asthma, hay-fever, immune deficiency and recurrent infection.
We deliver the highest quality clinical care to children and families with allergic and immune disorders. We play a vital role in increasing awareness, understanding and knowledge of allergic and immune disorders in the community and amongst health professionals through education, teaching and training. We play a leadership role in the development and improvement of health care policies and guidelines related to allergic and immune disorders. We also actively identify and pursue research priorities to prevent and improve management of these conditions.
The Department internally has links with the Departments of Nutrition and Food Services (Dietetics), Respiratory Medicine, Gastroenterology, Dermatology, and General Paediatrics.
Hours of operation are currently 8.30 am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.
