Dr Helen Evans-Howells

Chair of the Anaphylaxis UK Clinical and Scientific Panel & Trustee

Dr Helen Evans-Howells (née Howells) is a GP in Bournemouth. Helen developed an interest in allergies when her eldest son Ethan was born and developed milk and nut allergies. In order to ensure he received the best care she undertook a Master’s degree in Allergy at Southampton University. All of Dr Helen’s children have various allergies and atopic conditions and so she understands first hand, how hard allergies can be for a family. Dr Helen worked at the University Hospital of Southampton as a GP with an extended role in Allergy for over four years and now helps run their private peanut immunotherapy service (www.peanutallergyclinic.co.uk). She lectures extensively on the subject both nationally and internationally. Dr Helen undertook the role of Chair of the Primary Care Group of the British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI) from 2017 to 2020 with the primary aim of improving allergy care for patients like her son.

Dr Helen now runs Dr Helen Allergy (www.drhelenallergy.co.uk)– a private clinic for adults and children in Bournemouth and Dorchester. She provides virtual allergy support calls and consultations and has a free Facebook group where she regularly provides advice for those affected by allergies and eczema. drhelenallergy | Instagram, Facebook | Linktree
