“Identifying allergens early, learning how to avoid them and managing reactions allows families to gain confidence going forwards, improving their quality of life”
Dr Tom C Dawson
I am a general paediatrician with an interest in allergy. I have developed and lead the Worcestershire NHS Paediatric Allergy service to including diagnostics, food and drug challenges, and immunotherapy providing significantly more services than most other hospitals. I run a service seeing over 1000 patients a year. I completed an MSc in Allergy at Imperial College in 2014 and have contributed to teaching at national and international meetings.
Nationally I am part of the BSACI (British Society for Allergy & Clinical Immunology) BRIT (BSACI Registry for Immunotherapy) committee and am part of the BSACI/RCPCH standards committee for paediatric allegy.
Locally I am chair of the Midlands Paediatric Allergy Group and the Three Counties Allergy Group.
I the lead for paediatric research and have developed links with Worcester University.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR VISIT
Most of the patients families I see have not been listened to. They have not been heard in the chaos of a struggling NHS or simply want the time and space to raise their concerns.
Perhaps you're worried about your child's health or anxious they have a serious illness. A change might have occurred in your child's behavior or they may have developed symptoms you are concerned about. You may just feel you want your child reviewed.
Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer a clinical evaluation and review of your concerns with ongoing support if required.
I have the tools and professional experience to help your child thrive.
