Allergies in the North West

The North West is the third largest region and is home to seven million people, or one eighth of the UK population. There are 1.4 million children in the region and it is estimated that allergy affects at least a quarter of all children living in the North West. The North West Paediatric Allergy Network is a Managed Clinical Network, meeting four times a year to share our knowledge and expertise to ensure that children who are living with allergies in the North West are receiving the best available care.

Who we are

Our Network combines the clinical expertise of specialist paediatricians, GPs,  dietitians and nurses from centres throughout the North West who specialise in allergy, working alongside patient representation and managers.

We have two tertiary centres. Outreach specialist paediatric allergy clinics are conducted in five hospitals. We also have strong links with colleagues in most District General Hospitals in the North West that provide paediatric care.
