Online workshop Forum For Parents Of Allergic Children Launches Print

Action Against Allergy has teamed up with the online health information service www.talkallergy.com, in collaboration with NHS Choices (www.NHS.co.uk) to sponsor an online workshop forum for parents of allergic children.


For one week, beginning Friday February 18, parents needing advice on how to manage their children's food allergies will be able to post their questions in the forum and get expert answers and advice from leading paedriatic specialist doctors and nurses from the King's College London Allergy Academy - an educational initiative committed to providing education in the field of allergy to patients and their families as well as health care professionals.


Leading the medical team will be Dr Adam Fox, paediatric allergy consultant, with Dr Helen Brough, clinical lecturer in paediatric allergy; Hasita Prinja, specialist paediatric allergy dietitian, and paedriatic allergy registrar Sian Ludman. They are all with the allergy team at Guy's & St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust.


The workshop forum is free to access after registering as a member on www.talkallergy.com or any of its sister sites. Parents' questions and the experts' answers given will be available for all site visitors to view during the week and once it has closed.
