Allergy specialists and other useful contacts

1. Specialists within the Public System:

You need a referral from your GP to see Allergy Specialists operating in the public system. Referrals will be made as per local pathways. There may be waiting times but all referrals should be acknowledged by the hospital concerned.

  • In all areas, initial referral by the GP for children age 0-16 years will be to the Paediatric Outpatients Service at the nearest hospital. There is a Paediatric Allergy and Clinical Immunology Clinic at the Starship Children’s Hospital (ADHB), Auckland.
  • Immunology/allergy services for adults are located at Auckland City (ADHB), Wellington (CCDHB) and Christchurch (CDHB) Hospitals. Other DHBs may allow patients to be referred to these specialist services by GPs or through a specialist e.g. respiratory or physician at the patient’s local hospital.

2. Allergy Specialists/Clinics in Private Practice:

These specialists and clinics may be accessed directly but although you may not need a GP referral, it is often valuable to have your GP write a referral letter and send it through prior to your appointment. This can save valuable (and costly) time during your consultation.
