Rationale for Meeting
Following PPI events by the Manchester Allergy Support Group in 2016 identifying the lack of effective and timely support for parents with infants who suffer from cow’s milk protein allergies a different approach to care has now been evaluated in a number of centres in the North West. The focus is on Group Dietetic sessions for between 6 to 10 infants and their parents led by a dietitian, sometime with the help of the local HV. Over the last two years successful pilots are now up and running at Wythenshawe Hospital, The Wirral, and in community practices in Trafford, Bury and Oldham. The group sessions have been enthusiastically received by both parents and dietitians, with better peer support, reduced waiting times for patients and more rapid throughput. Dietitians from pilot centres have now formed a Group Dietetic Subgroup of the network to provide consensus documents and protocols for other centres who are interested in setting up these sessions.
