Professional statement

Dr Adam Fox is an expert consultant paediatric allergist and one of the founding consultants of the children's allergy service at the world-renowned Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals, home to the UK's largest paediatric allergy centre. Dr Fox is one of only a handful of UK doctors with recognised higher specialist training in paediatric allergy. His specialist interests include the management of food allergies, eczema, asthma, rhinitis (including hayfever), conjunctivitis, and drug and insect sting allergy. He is also the current president of the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology, having become the first paediatrician to be elected into this role, in 2017.

As a result of his extensive experience and expert care, Dr Fox was included in The Times' Magazine ‘Britain's 100 Best Children's Doctors’, with the Tatler 2013 Guide listing him as one of the UK's top 250 specialists. In 2007, he was recognised as 'Paediatric Allergist of the Year' by Allergy UK. He also received the Raymond Horton-Smith award from Cambridge University for his research and a national Clinical Excellence Award from the Department of Health in 2016. In 2016 he was awarded the William Frankland Award from the British Society for Allergy & Clinical Immunology for his contribution to the speciality and in 2017 elected as the first paediatrician to be President (from October 2018).

Dr Fox completed his clinical training at University College London, having read Medicine and Neuroscience at Cambridge University. He went on to complete specialist training in paediatric allergy in 2006, before spending nine years as clinical lead of allergy at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals, London - one of Europe's largest specialist allergy services, recognised as a Centre of Excellence by both the World Allergy Organisation and GALEN (European Asthma and Allergy Network). Following three years as clinical director for specialist ambulatory medicine, he began as commercial medical director for Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. 

Dr Fox has conducted extensive research and is actively involved in cutting edge research in allergy desensitisation, asthma prevention, and food allergy, in setting up the largest allergen desensitisation programme in the UK. He has also published extensively, and is the senior author of the Milk Allergy in Primary Care guideline, which has been adopted around the world and received the Allergy UK Innovation Award in 2018. Dr Fox is an advisor to National Institute of Healthcare and Clinical Excellence (NICE) and chaired a clinical guideline development group for food allergy in children.
