Mr Ken Ward-Atherton (Lord)

Consultant for Integrated Medicine (Food Allergies & Intolerances)

Ken Ward-Atherton has an exemplary NHS background and has held senior NHS posts at the previous Liverpool Royal Infirmary, Fazakerley Hospital (now Aintree University Hospital) Mossley Hospital and within the Community Health sector in Liverpool. He is a respected and experienced consultant who has completed several decades of full time clinical practice. He became interested in Integrative medicine during the 1980's whilst working in the NHS, embarking initially on an Introductory course in Homeopathic Medicine at the NHS Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, followed by further specialised training in Homeopathic Medicine in Stuttgart, Germany from 1977 - 1983

In recent years he has specialised in the diagnosis and management of Food related illness, as he considers diet is often a main contributory factor to the causation of many everyday acute and chronic conditions. His clinical practice both at the Sefton Suite at Aintree University Hospital and at the Sefton Suite Diagnostic centre in Blundellsands utilises state of the art specialized blood tests to investigate and screen patients for either 60 or 120 common foods. These unique laboratory investigations can detect specific antibody reactions to a whole range of foods, that may be contributing to health problems. There are also other screening tests available for other specific food and airborne allergens such as dust, pollens and pets.

All investigations are followed by a full report, generally within a week after the consultation. After investigation, where most common allergies & intolerances are found Ken Ward-Atherton can offer supportive non-drug Homeopathic treatment which in many cases can be effective, where more serious allergies exist he refers patients on to an appropriate clinical immunologist.

Outside his professional practice, Ken Ward-Atherton also holds the titles Lord of Witley & Hurcott Worcestershire, following the late William Humble David Ward, the 4th Earl of Dudley. Since becoming Lord of Witley & Hurcott in 2003 he has had an immense opportunity to highlight and support various charities and good causes throughout the year, especially those affecting young children with fatal genetic illness. He also holds patronage's supporting the Integrated Therapies Unit at Christie Hospital NHS Trust Foundation Manchester, and the Alkaptonuria Society at the department of anatomy & cell biology at the University of Liverpool Medical School. In May 2015 he was appointed as an Ambassador to the City of Liverpool under the Ambassador programme led by the Liverpool Convention Bureau and working in partnership with ACC Liverpool.
