GPs go forth

Howard drops in to see how it's done

Dr Dermot Ryan, a GP in Loughborough, Leicestershire, has called for more allergy training for medical students and GPs.

'What we have now is woefully inadequate. We need to think about allergy services in a different way,' said Dr Ryan, whose discussion paper was published online this week by the Primary Care Respiratory Journal.

Dr Ryan, a member of the General Practice Airways Group, called for an 'all-embracing strategy' to tackle the problem, including allergy GPwSIs in PCTs.The paper, published as a survey by Allergy UK, reported 69 per cent of allergic rhinitis patients were still seeking effective treatment.
