A new Allergy Passport has been introduced at Leeds Children’s Hospital to reduce anxiety for young patients.

The Allergy Adventures’ Passport Pack has been designed to help parents and carers explain what will happen during a visit to the allergy clinic. 

Brenda DeWitt, children’s allergy nurse specialist at Leeds Children’s Hospital, said: “We know that for many children coming to their allergy appointments can be quite a scary experience and we want to try and make the patient journey through the clinic more fun.”

The passport is the brainchild of Hailey Phillips from Allergy Adventures, who has been introducing them across the UK.
