Dr Helen Evans-Howells

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. 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.
