The post of Paediatric Allergy Clinical Nurse Specialist is a new and exciting opportunity at West Hertfordshire Healthcare Trust. We provide diagnostic and management advice for children with a wide range of atopic conditions including food allergies, allergic respiratory, gastrointestinal and skin conditions. 

The service is consultant led but is supported by a well-established nursing team and dieticians in order to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to care. Outpatient clinics are provided at Watford General Hospital and Hemel Hempstead on a weekly basis. These clinics are provided as a one stop service which includes skin prick testing as well as blood testing for rapid diagnosis. In addition, some clinics also include dietetic input to discuss dietary management alongside medical interventions. As part of future development, the department will aim to provide dietetic support for all one stop clinics

In addition to outpatient activity – there is also a day-case facility at Watford General on Safari Ward where food challenges are undertaken under the supervision of appropriately trained nurses.

The Paediatric Allergy service offering from WHHT is more specialised compared to other DGH’s. The lead consultant is an accredited Allergist and over the past 12 months, a clinical and business strategy has been developed in order to streamline the service and make it more efficient. As part of the clinical strategy, closer working relationships with primary care have been developed with clinical pathways as well as training and support provided to GPs in order to ensure that more allergic conditions can be better managed within the community

We are looking for an experienced allergy nurse who is both motivated and a dynamic individual, an excellent communicator and an effective team player whilst having the knowledge and skills to work independently.
