More Allergens, Affecting More People

There is a growing number of people in the UK suffering with life threatening allergies (anaphylaxis). The substances to which they're reacting is growing too, and includes a wide variety of foods as well as non-food substances such as latex.

Responding quickly and correctly to anaphylactic shock is really important. That's where these two courses come in.
