The Tony Frew Excellence in Allergy Education Lecture - BSACI

The Tony Frew Excellence in Allergy Education Lecture

BSACI would like to announce a new lecture from 2024, The Tony Frew Excellence in Allergy Education Lecture in memory of Professor Anthony Frew. Professor Frew was one of the leading members of the UK allergy community. He served on the BSACI Council from 1993 until September 2018, including two terms as Treasurer and three years as Secretary and became BSACI President in 2012. His insights have ultimately helped shaped the society into what it is today.  

In 2005 he moved to Brighton as one of the “founder members” of the new medical school, where in addition to becoming a prominent member of the acute medical, respiratory and allergy teams he established infrastructure for the teaching of medical students.

Together with Professor Andrew Wardlaw, Professor Frew was successful in helping the BSACI bring the 2010 EAACI (European Academy of Allergy & Clinical Immunology) Meeting to London, resulting in one of the largest EAACI meetings ever to take place in a European city.

In 2016, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to UK clinical allergy, he was chosen by the BSACI membership to receive the William Frankland Award and in the following year elected by the membership to deliver the prestigious Jack Pepys Lecture. Professor Frew is one of the few people to have received both of the highest honours bestowed by the Society.

The Lecture

The Tony Frew Excellence in Allergy Education Lecture is for innovative educational initiatives to improve care and outcomes for those with allergy. The educational initiative(s) can be for patients, families, health professionals or students in training. The lecture will be presented during the BSACI Annual Conference with the lecturer being presented with an engraved salver & framed certificate.


The educational initiative(s) presented must be replicable, scalable and have learning potential in other contexts and must have been running for at least two years and have been evaluated.


All healthcare professionals can apply (doctors, nurses, dietitians, health psychologists, scientists, etc.,) and medical educationalists.  The Society particularly encourages applications from those in their early career.


A call for nominations is now open and closes at 9am on Monday 21 April 2024.

BSACI members can self-nominate or nominate a colleague (either a BSACI Member or a non-Member). Nominations should be sent to [email protected] in the form of an A4 letter of no more than 1,000 words outlining why consideration should be given to the nominee to present this lecture. 

The BSACI Senior Leadership Team will have the final decision on who will be the successful lecturer.
