We are delighted to welcome Professor John Warner OBE as our Clinical and Scientific Ambassador. Professor Warner will be supporting Anaphylaxis UK in providing evidence-based information on serious allergy and anaphylaxis to the allergic community. John has supported the charity in a number of roles ever since it was established.
Now semi-retired, Professor Warner was the consultant paediatric allergy and chest physician at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Professor of paediatrics at Imperial College London. However, he is still an active allergy researcher and educator. John was awarded an OBE for services to food allergy research in 2014. John became our Clinical and Scientific Advisory Panel Chair in 2020 and previously he was a trustee and medical advisor.
Speaking about his new ambassador role, Professor Warner said:
“I am delighted to be taking on this role as Clinical and Scientific Ambassador. In a world where there is so much misinformation circulating, ensuring that members of the public know where to turn for accurate information is vital, and it will ultimately save lives. My commitment is to the delivery of gold-standard care to all allergy sufferers. This means having the optimal experience and health outcomes as you navigate through the health system. I am very excited to be involved in this and the work that Anaphylaxis UK do in helping the allergic community.”
Simon Williams, Chief Executive of Anaphylaxis UK, said:
“We’re honoured that Professor John Warner has agreed to become our Clinical and Scientific Ambassador. All our resources are based on clinical evidence and we pride ourselves on being an accurate and reliable source of information for the allergic community. Professor Warner’s support is hugely valued and will help us to continue our mission.”
