Allergic disease accounts for 6 per cent of GP consultations and 0.6 per cent of hospital admissions. A highly critical report by the Commons health select committee called for the development of a national allergy service, but the government has failed to act. Primary care trusts can help to improve local allergy services by commissioning practice-based allergy clinics or integrated allergy/asthma services.
