About our service

Clinical Immunology Service is a service for patients with immunodeficiency and allergies. Patients with suspected or diagnosed immunodeficiency (excluding immunodeficiency secondary to HIV) are managed by the team

 

Salford Royal provides a comprehensive Clinical Immunology service and is a key hospital in the North West for seeing patients with Immunodeficiency and Allergy.

 

Patients with suspected or diagnosed immunodeficiency (excluding immunodeficiency secondary to HIV) are managed by the team.  There are approximately 600 patients in the North West area who come under that remit with varying degrees of intervention requirements under the care of the department.

 

Adults with suspected immune deficiencies are seen within the Clinical Immunology clinics.

 

There are no admitting facilities for Immunology. Any patient who requires in-patient admission to Salford Royal will usually be admitted under the medical on call team with advice and support from the Clinical Immunology team.


Aims of the Service

The Department of Clinical immunology is committed to provide the highest quality service to the patients.

 

Our aim is to provide quality assured service of the highest standards and in line with the Trust’s values of “patient and customer focus, accountability, continuous improvement and respect”.
