NEWS: Les Griffiths from Huddersfield has started a support group to help others affected by severe allergies, or ‘anaphylaxis’.
Food allergies are thought to affect around 5-8% of children and 2-4% of adults. NHS hospital in England dealt with over 20,000 admissions for allergies in the 12 months between February 2013 and February 2014 and every year around 20 people will die from anaphylaxis.
Les’s support group is run in conjunction with the Anaphylaxis Campaign, the only UK-wide charity to support people with severe, life threatening allergies.
Les said, “I helped start the group because living with severe allergies, whether allergic yourself or as a carer for someone else with anaphylaxis, can be really difficult and have a profound impact on your daily life."
The group's next meeting will be on 15 September. You can also follow ‘The Anaphylaxis Campaign’ on Facebook and on Twitter @anaphylaxiscoms for more details about support groups.
