Compass Immunology has a highly skilled nursing team running clinics across both Greenslopes and Grange sites. Our nurses co-ordinate patient clinics independently however always in conjunction with a Doctor on site. Once you have seen one of the attending Allergists/Immunologists, our nurses may assist with performing further investigations and procedures. They are particularly skilled in administering immunotherapy and performing food and drug challenges and patch testing. Specialized treatments and patient training for immunoglobulin therapy or Berinert are also available.
Our nurses are available for established patients to book directly for immunotherapy appointments. They are also provide education on food allergy management, anaphylaxis recognition and emergency treatment as well as infant growth checks and eczema follow-up. Appointments for nurses can be made directly online or by calling reception.
Please note our nursing clinics are often busy and appointment times are limited at short notice. You are welcome to email the nurses for any queries as the nurses are usually not able to attend to phone calls. An email response will be given within 24-48 hours. Nurse’s email – Nurse@compass.clinic
