Specialist Paediatric Dietitian in Allergy and Gastroenterology, Manchester
Rachel qualified from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2006. She worked in adult dietetics for almost 5 years, covering a variety of specialities, before taking a change in direction and moving into paediatric dietetics. She gained a wide range of experience in her first paediatric role at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, a tertiary paediatric centre, before choosing to focus on allergy and gastroenterology.
For almost 6 years, Rachel has led the allergy and gastroenterology service at Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital. As part of the North West allergy network, she has been involved in developing allergy services, pathways and resources in the area. She is heavily involved in training other health professionals on managing milk allergy and on the importance of nutrients such as vitamin D and iodine, and recently authored the chapter on nutrition for the ‘Learning to Care’ guide for nursing associates. She has lectured for the Royal College of GP’s, sits on the Faculty for the Royal College of Paediatric Child Health, and is the representative dietitian on the British Society of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (BSPGHAN) Intestinal Failure Nutrition working group.
