We aim to provide oral immunotherapy at both our central hub at Great Ormond Street Hospital as well as, where appropriate, at more local facilities that we are satisfied are suitable for the safe provision of food immunotherapy. These local facilities will offer care under the direct supervision of our highly specialist staff, using the same protocol as those at the central hub.
Our clinical hub is our daycare facility on Dragonfly ward on the 4th floor in the International and Private Patients Wing of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. Please use the entrance to the Octav Botnar Wing on Lamb’s Conduit Street, not the main hospital main entrance.
Our clinics at Great Ormond Street are held on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons as well as Tuesday all day. All visits are by appointment only, please call 0203 633 9851 to arrange.

Here’s what our patients have to say…
Each member of the team that we dealt with, whether medical or support staff, were excellent.
The support has been excellent throughout.
We had a clear plan from early in the process and managed to follow through with only a couple of amendments (which we made).
We have been impressed and very grateful for the speed at which our queries have been responded to.

Excellent. All of the team were very efficient and we found the chart with the dates and dosage for the updosing appointments particularly helpful.
The team were easy to reach, including direct contact with the consultants, even at the weekend and over holiday periods.
The overall experience was excellent.
