Standards of Care Committee
In 2004 BSACI
set up the Standards of Care Committee to develop guidelines for use in
secondary care by both adult physicians and paediatricians practising
allergy. SOCC also leads on national allergy audits and is involved in the development of SOPs. The committee's chair is Dr Andrew Clark. The committee currently consists of 16 members including allergy specialists, paediatric allergists and immunologists and is supported by Dr. Maryam Shayeghi the BSACI research officer who is a staff member of BSACI head office. SOCC also interacts with and supports the BSACI primary care working group in the development of allergy guidelines for primary care. The constitution of the Standards of Care Committee can be downloaded here (31kb). To learn more about the present members of the Standards of Care Committee please scroll down the page.
Published guidelines are freely accessible to BSACI members via the guidelines webpage. All guidelines since 2007 have also been made freely available on the Clinical and Experimental Allergy website.
The work undertaken by the SOCC, the guideline group
members and the lay person(s) is on an honorary basis although expenses
to attend meetings are funded by the Society. The Society does not seek
external funding for the production of its guidelines.
