Allergy Testing

Spire Portsmouth Hospital has offered a wide range of private blood tests and investigations for many years. With our on-site pathology laboratory providing fast results, our facilities offer patients high diagnostic standards of care in the Hampshire, West Sussex and Isle of Wight region and our consultants are all recognised experts in their field, whether the allergy symptoms cause a respiratory, gastrointestinal or skin disorder, we have specialists to help determine the cause.

Allergies are the body’s adverse reaction to substances in our everyday environment. These reactions can be caused by a wide range of things including pollen, dust and certain foods. Common allergic reactions include hayfever, asthma and skin abnormalities.
