Dr Cinzia Pastacaldi
MD, FRCPCH, MSc
I provide diagnosis and management of allergic conditions including food allergy, anaphylaxis, chronic urticaria and angioedema, hay fever and allergic rhinoconjunctivitis. Diagnosis: skin tests and/or blood tests will be performed as indicated after carefully listening to the patients’ problems. Management: treatment will be prescribed and education on the self-management of the condition will be provided during the consultation.
I started my career in Italy, where I qualified as an MD at the University of Genoa and specialised in Paediatrics at the Gaslini Children's Hospital. After moving to the UK in 2002, I set up a Paediatric Allergy Service at Singleton Hospital in Swansea. I obtained an MSc in Allergy from the University of Southampton in 2009; I've actively participated in clinical research, contributing to peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals.
I've recently worked as Honorary Consultant at the Royal Alexandra Children's Hospital in Brighton and currently offer private consultations at the Montefiore Hospital in Brighton.
