Liverpool leads the way in allergy management

As National Allergy Awareness Week begins, running from 22 April to 27 April, St. Hilda’s Secondary School in Liverpool is among the first schools in the city to adopt an anaphylaxis kit provided by Kitt Medical.

The school in south Liverpool has taken proactive steps to ensure the safety and well-being of its students by implementing an innovative anaphylaxis kit provided by Kitt Medical, making it one of the first schools in the city to do so.

The anaphylaxis kit comprises emergency adrenaline pens, online CPD-accredited training, and incident reporting mechanisms, ensuring swift and effective responses to allergy emergencies for students and visitors.

The integration of Kitt Medical’s anaphylaxis kit at St. Hilda’s Primary School has already proven to be impactful in safeguarding students. As Assistant Head Teacher, Ben Norton says, “Students can feel safe and secure knowing that we have this provision in school.”

Matt Ashton, Director of Public Health at Liverpool City Council said, “it’s fantastic to see this pioneering approach to allergy awareness happening in Liverpool.

“Not only do these specialised kits offer a fantastic resource for teachers, but they are really important as an awareness raising tool for our young people, giving more understanding of what to look out for when it comes to allergic reactions.”
