The BSACI works collaboratively with other external stakeholders in order to fulfil our aims some of these are: the World Allergy Organisation (WAO), European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) and with patient charities Allergy UK and Anaphylaxis Campaign. Together we have been instrumental in lobbying for better provision of allergy care in an alliance called the National Allergy Strategy Group, along with patient charities and supported by industry. Many of our members have given evidence at Government enquiries into allergy care and represent the society on NICE guidelines. BSACI is open to working alongside other groups and professional organisations who share the same values and have similar aims.
