ACLI Physicians work with patients who are suffering from autoimmune diseases, such as Coeliac and Hashimoto’s disease, immune deficiencies, such as primary immunodeficiency (PID) disorders, or allergic reactions, such as hives, rashes, wheezing, anaphylaxis, and hay fever. They review their patient's medical history, determine what tests are required and what treatments can help alleviate any discomfort. They interpret test results, form diagnosis, and help to prevent further allergic reactions or improve their patient's immunity and well-being by creating management and treatment plans and by educating their patients about their condition. They play an important role in advising and consulting with other medical specialists in the hospital, primary care physicians, and public health and government agencies. To pursue a career in this field, Doctors undertake foundation and core training, followed by training in Clinical and Laboratory Immunology and Allergy, a 5-year program that leads to a CCT, FRCPath, and entry onto the GMC specialty register. These specialists work in community and private practices, hospitals, research institutions, and/or diagnostic pathology laboratories.
