The North West Paediatric Allergy Network - Sub Group
The North West of England is the third largest region and is home to nearly 7 million people, or one eighth of the UK population. There are 1.4 million children in the region and it is estimated that allergy affects at least a quarter of all children living in the North West.
The North West Paediatric Allergy Network is subgroup of the North West Paediatric Allergy, Immunology and Infection Group (NW-PAIIG) Group, an aspiring ODN within NHS England. It combines the expertise of specialist paediatricians and nurses from centre's throughout the North West who specialise in allergy.
We have two tertiary centres based at Alder-Hey Children's Hospital and Royal Manchester Children's Hospital from which outreach specialist paediatric allergy clinics are conducted in the Wirral, Wigan, Lancaster, Preston and Macclesfield.
We also have strong links with colleagues at UHSM Allergy Centre in South Manchester. A patient group representative is also a member of our Network Steering Group.
We meet formally four times a year under our established Terms of Reference to share our knowledge and expertise to ensure that children who are living with allergies in the North West are receiving the best available care.
Our aim is to provide high quality and up to date knowledge and information to the children, families and carers of children living with allergies. We also work to provide a source of information and support to general practitioners, and healthcare workers who are involved with children with allergies further to this we run a programme of allergy study days throughout the region which are well attended and are becoming increasingly popular.
