Interview with Dr Helen Cox, Lead clinician and Consultant in Paediatric Allergy and Immunology at Imperial College NHS Trust
Dr Helen Cox regularly lectures at Imperial College. She is a clinical course leader for the MSC in Clinical Allergy, an international training course, based at Imperial College. Helen also speaks annually at the British Paediatric Dermatology Congress and the British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology. She is an invited guest speaker at numerous Allergy conferences both within the UK and Europe.

Dr Helen Evans-Howell – comprehensive and practical knowledge, equipping you with the tools and strategies that you need to effectively manage allergies.
“Although I have been on this allergy journey for 14 years, I am still learning, you can’t absorb all you need to know in your allergy appointments. April has more allergies than Sadie, and her reactions have been different. I thought I knew the signs but when April had her first reaction, she behaved differently and it was so scary. Thankfully we knew how to use the adrenaline pens and felt we knew when to give it to her.
“I joined Dr Helen’s Allergy courses to refresh my brain. I learnt so much including more about the mechanism of how the body reacts. She explained it so simply and yet it felt like I was being given secret medical information that only the doctors know.
“If you have an opportunity to do the whole course or just a module I thoroughly recommend it. The expertise and opportunity to have these experts at your finger tips is truly fantastic.” Clare Bristow
