Gillian Waring and David Levy argue that offering skin and oral food tests provides more accurate diagnoses

The Department of Health (2006) has highlighted that food allergy is increasing in prevalence. In response, Tameside General Hospital in Greater Manchester has developed a dedicated children’s allergy service. By using skin tests, followed by oral consumption of a particular food, the clinic is able to establish allergies and prevent future adverse reactions. This article summarises the findings of an audit of food challenges that were undertaken at the clinic.
