Care for patients with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) in an outpatient setting will typically be within local allergy clinics, available in most hospitals. These services are commissioned locally by clinical commissioning groups. There are no current plans to designate or commission the care of patients with MCAS as a prescribed national specialised clinic or service.

A list of local allergy clinics can be obtained from the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology at:
