Our Manchester Allergy Support Group meeting on Monday 5th June 2017 was attended by Dr Peter Arkwright, Consultant in Paediatric Allergy and Immunology, Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, who provided an update following the Future Hospitals Project ‘Making Your Voice Heard in the Development of Children’s Allergy Services’.
Last year representatives from the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, the Royal College of Physicians and the Anaphylaxis Campaign attended a Manchester support group meeting. Attendees at that meeting were invited to give accounts of their experiences of allergy care provision and how improvements could be made as part of the Future Hospitals project. On Monday 5th June the attendees received an update on the project and the changes that have been made. Attendees also had the opportunity to give their views on possible further improvements.
Anaphylaxis Campaign CEO, Lynne Regent said, “It’s brilliant that Michelle Byrne runs a support group for us in Manchester. Many people in the general population do not understand just how serious allergy and anaphylaxis can be. Our support groups, like the one Michelle is running, provide a vital touch point for affected families and individuals and are a really positive way for them to support each other. The Future Hospitals project is an excellent initiative which benefits the many families living with allergic disease and improves the care they receive. We are delighted to have been involved in this initiative.”
