Local Allergy clinic helping to tackle the increased demand in allergy care 

 

The number of Australians seeking medical care for Allergy has doubled in the past generation. Australia has among the highest prevalence of allergic disorders in the developed world with around 20% of Australians suffering from an allergy. They can affect children and adults and are considered one of the fastest growing chronic conditions affecting Australians.

Unfortunately, allergies are only increasing globally. At the heart of many chronic illnesses may be an undetected allergy. At Australian Allergy Centre, we can help diagnose and assess the severity of allergic conditions and help co-manage the condition with a range of inter-disciplinary professionals.

At the Australian Allergy Centre our aim is to increase access to allergy diagnosis and management for all Australians. Since 2015, we’ve helped more than 20,000 patients get answers sooner to a range of allergy and ENT related conditions.

With this in mind, the Australian Allergy Centre has opened a new clinic, conveniently located at Westfield Bondi Junction, in partnership with local general practice clinic MyHealth Bondi Junction.

Australia’s first shared care allergy team approach - a sustainable general practice solution for the future of allergy care.

Allergists and immunologists are among the most in-demand health professionals in Australia.

In some places it can take more than a year to get an Allergy test or it can be very expensive. We believe that quality specialist heath care should be accessible to all Australians. Here's how we are trying to change that.

The Australian Allergy Centre is a Primary Care Allergy service run by General Practitioners with additional Allergy and ENT skills training. Our GP’s are shared.care Doctors. This means they are part of a team of medical professionals equipped in allergy diagnosis and comprehensive treatment, meaning you get the answers you need sooner, without the stress and sometimes unaffordable price tag.

The GP shared.care model was built in response to the growing demands for access to comprehensive Allergy testing and management. Our GP’s are trained to assess allergic disease in a GP shared.care framework espoused by the National Allergy Strategy in 2016.

At Australian Allergy Centre, our Doctors and nurses are trained to work alongside specialists in ENT, Immunology, Dermatology, Anaesthetics, Orthodontics, Paediatricians, Sleep and Respiratory physicians to give Australian patients the nation’s first shared care allergy team approach.

How the Australian Allergy Centre can help you and your family

Our allergy team of doctors and nurses can arrange on-site allergy testing, diagnosis and treatment. Wherever required, we also co-ordinate access to a range of interdisciplinary specialists.

The Australian Allergy Centre offers rapid access to allergy testing and Medicare rebatable tests, and patients don’t require a referral to see our doctors.

Our Doctors offer first-line testing and treatment for a number of allergic conditions including, allergic rhinitis (hay fever), allergic sinusitis, allergic conjunctivitis, asthma, eczema, food allergy, anaphylaxis and contact dermatitis.

As part of our allergy investigations, we offer skin prick tests for a wide range of allergens (including aero-allergens, food, nuts and seafood). We also offer contact patch testing for metals and chemicals, and medical airway checks.

The range of allergy treatments and management solutions available at the clinic include:

1. Immunotherapy, often referred to as desensitisation, is considered the closest thing to a “cure” for allergy.

2. Rhinolight treatments (a non-drug treatment option for hay fever sufferers)

3. 6 weeks nasal challenge

4. Case conferences
