The Clinical Immunology department at Salford Royal is one of the four referral centres for Adult Immunodeficiency and Allergy. It is a part of North West Allergy and Clinical Immunology network. Our lead consultant is Dr Archana Herwadkar (Consultant Clinical Immunologist).

Service Accreditation

We had a successful visit for QPIDS (Quality in Primary Immunodeficiency Service) on 28 March 2019. Comments from the assessment team included “the service is well led and patient centred”.  The assessors congratulated the team on excellent team working as well as effective networking across the region.  Our service will be accredited for five years, subject to an annual renewal assessment.


We are also preparing for an IQAS (Improving Quality in Allergy Services) inspection also for assessment of our allergy service in early 2020.

 

We achieved UKPIN (UK Primary Immunodeficiency Network) accreditation for our Immunology service in 2014 which transferred over to the QPIDS scheme in 2015. The scheme is hosted by the Royal College of Physicians (London) and services which achieve it undergo a rigorous quality assessment. When the service can demonstrate that the standards are met, they are granted the accreditation. 


Aims of the Service

The Clinical Immunology service 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”.
