Eastern Health Box Hill runs a clinic for the assessment, investigation and management of adult allergies and immunological conditions.

Information is available on HealthPathways Melbourne for assistance in managing your patient’s condition. This includes what investigations you need to perform prior to referring to a specialist and what information you need to include in the referral.  If you require login access to HealthPathways, contact [email protected]

At Eastern Health, we accept Allergy referrals for the following conditions:

  • Allergic diseases – angioedema, urticaria, drug allergy, food allergy, insect sting allergy, allergic rhinitis, anaphylaxis for investigations and mastocytosis
  • Immunodeficiencies (impaired immune system due to an inherited or acquired cause)
  • Autoimmune diseases – connective tissue diseases, vasculitis and auto-inflammatory diseases
  • Allergy skin and lung function tests via Respiratory Lab (Lung Function Tests) referral

Refer paediatric patients to ‘Paediatric Allergy’.

Please be aware that the Allergy Clinic does not currently have the capacity to investigate vaccine-related allergies. For those requesting further testing/management, please refer to another health provider.

For referral information, including how to refer electronically, see Specialist (Outpatients) Clinics.

If your patient’s condition deteriorates, please send an updated referral via HealthLink SmartForms selecting the Referral Continuation “Amended referral/update previously sent referral” with additional clinical information. 

Emergency cases should be sent to the Emergency Department.
