Allergies are becoming increasingly prevalent in the UK and patients are expressing concern that the available treatment and support for people with the condition is grossly inadequate. Up to 30% of adults and 40% of children have an allergy. Peanut allergies were quite rare prior to 1990 but today at least 1 child in 70 will have a peanut allergy.
