The network is involved in a number of projects which are detailed in this section. These include:
- FUTURE HOSPITAL PROJECT – coordinated by the Royal College of Physicians. The aim of this project is to educate and empower primary care clinicians to effective manage children with milk and nut allergies in the community, avoiding the need for frequent hospital reviews for the majority of patients.
- AMEND NOW – linking up with children’s emergency departments throughout the region to ensure optimal acute management and follow-up of children suffering from anaphylaxis
- DATABASE DEVELOPMENT – in conjunction with colleagues at the University of Manchester, developing an electronic system of collecting and collating data on workload within the children’s allergy network across the region
