    The parents of a teenage girl who died from an allergic reaction to a Pret a Manger baguette have set up a clinical trial to make "food allergies history". Nadim and Tanya Ednan-Laperouse's daughter Natasha, 15, died in 2016 after eating a baguette containing sesame, to which she was allergic. The trial will investigate if everyday food products can be used as treatment. It is a unique opportunity to establish immunotherapy as a practical treatment, according to an expert. The trial, set up by the family from Fulham in west London, will see whether commonly available food p

    The rising rate at which Australian children are being admitted to hospital for serious food allergies has flattened since infant feeding guidelines were changed, new research shows. The rate of hospitalisation for food anaphylaxis has increased in Australia in recent decades – but data suggests that changes to allergy prevention and infant feeding guidelines in 2008 and 2016 have helped to stem the rise in young children and teenagers. In 2008, the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy guidelines were changed to recommend that allergenic solid foods should no longe

    The new Information Standard will standardise medication message content, enabling transfer of prescription information across health and care settings in England to help reduce medicines related errors and improve patient safety. The Standard will enable medicines information to be more efficiently shared between NHS and social care organisations, including primary and secondary care – from hospitals and GP practices to residential care homes, mental health trusts, and pharmacies. It will be particularly beneficial in reducing medication errors when patients transfer between care locati

    Having a child with a food allergy can have a devastating effect on all of the family. Research by the University of East Anglia last month (March) revealed that almost half (42%) of parents of children living with food allergies have suffered trauma that meets the criteria for post-traumatic stress symptoms.[1] It’s a shocking figure, but perhaps not surprising. Between 6 and 8% of children have a food allergy, with the most common being eggs, milk and peanuts. The number of people admitted to hospital for severe food allergies has tripled over the past two decades according to research

    A new information standard has been developed for sharing digital information on medication and allergies across different parts of health and social care services. The standard, which aims to reduce medicines errors comes into effect this month. NHS and social care organisations will have to show compliance by March 2023. GP practices, hospitals, mental health trusts, pharmacists, community teams and residential care homes will all have to meet the standard when transferring medication and prescription information between teams. The standard will be particularly helpful in redu

    What is an Adjournment Debate? There is a 30-minute Adjournment Debate at the end of each day's sitting of the House of Commons. They provide an opportunity for an individual backbench MP to raise an issue and receive a response from the relevant Minister. Unlike many other debates, these take place without a question which the House of Commons must then make a decision on.[1] NHS Allergy Services In this debate Jon Cruddas MP raised a series of points about improving allergy services in the UK and in support of numerous recommendations made in a recent report by the All-Party Par

    A teenager with a severe nut allergy died in part because of human error, a coroner has ruled. Shante Turay-Thomas, 18, had a severe reaction to eating a hazelnut. The inquest heard a series of failures meant that an ambulance took more than 40 minutes to arrive at her home in Wood Green, north London. Her mother Emma Turay, who said she felt "badly let down" by the NHS, wants an "allergy tsar" to be appointed to help prevent similar deaths. The inquest heard call staff for the NHS's 111 non-emergency number failed to appreciate the teenager's worsening condition was typical of

    This article from the Natasha Allergy Research Foundation (NARF) notes that the updated guidance came in response to the inquest into Shante Turay-Thomas, who died in north London just 18 years old, from anaphylaxis after eating hazelnut. The Coroner found that she had not been properly advised that the reason for carrying two AAIs was that in the event of a severe food allergy. A second dose of adrenaline can be a life preserving measure whilst waiting for emergency medical treatment. The coroner warned that action is needed to ensure that people with severe food allergies are aware that

    People with allergies and pregnant women can now be given the country’s two approved COVID-19 vaccines, the medical regulator said on Wednesday. Previous advice from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said people with a range of allergies to food and medicines should not be given the Pfizer vaccine. Dr June Raine, the MHRA’s chief executive, said growing evidence from a pool of at least 800,000 people in the UK and around 1.5 million people in the US who have had the vaccine has "raised no additional concerns". This, she continued, "gives us further a

    A nurse from scandal-hit Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital ordered a pregnant woman to take medication she was allergic to. Christine Speake, who had worked in the NHS for almost 40 years as a midwife and nurse, has been struck-off the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register after a tribunal heard she told the mother to “just take it” and then tried to cover-up her mistake after the woman suffered a reaction. The NMC hearing was told the 11-week pregnant patient and her unborn child could have died after being prescribed the Buscopan by a junior doctor to treat severe nausea and v

    There is a “lack” of NHS services available to people with allergies, a group of MPs has said. Despite increasing rates of hospital admissions for severe allergic reactions – also known as anaphylaxis – allergy services “have largely been ignored”, the All Party Parliamentary Group for Allergy said. The group warned allergies are “poorly managed” across the health service due to a “lack of training” and only a small number of allergy experts. “This mismatch has continued despite millions of patients having significant allergic disease,” it said. In its latest report, which

Increase allergy knowledge in primary care through training and education. Bring allergy care into the 21st century, raise standards and the consistency of care across the UK.
