Integrated Care Delivery in Paediatric Allergy:
We have an established network of allergy care reaching into primary care via the Connecting Care for Children hubs in addition to primary care being networked via the North West London Asthma & Allergy Network. As part of our network arrangements, we have strong and permanent working relationships with a number of consultants with special interest in paediatric allergy.
We provide services on the Hammersmith Hospital site three days per week (David Harvey Unit).
We deal with all aspects of allergic disease and specifically provide a holistic service for children with severe multisystem allergic disease. We care for children with very complex disease via an established tertiary care network with joint clinics in allergy/gastroenterology together with colleagues at Chelsea & Westminster (Dr Jenny Epstein, Consultant Paediatric Gastroenterologist), the severe asthma team at the Royal Brompton Hospital (Dr Sam Sonnappa) and paediatric dermatologists (Dr Caroline Hewitt), ENT surgeons. The service is supported our clinical psychologist as well as a senior speech and language therapist in the dedicated feeding clinic for children with allergy related feeding difficulties.
There is a large research programme with clinical research taking place on the dedicated Children’s Clinical Research Facility. We are part of the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre and perform clinical trials, laboratory based trials and systematic reviews.
