Paed Allergy services survey

25-Jan-2019
Before Christmas, all trusts in the UK were sent a brief questionnaire establishing whether they provided paediatric allergy services. This was done as a Freedom of Information request, the result being that a response was received from every single trust in the UK. The great majority of these were providing paediatric allergy services and will be sent a more comprehensive questionnaire. This again, is being undertaken as an FoI request. We appreciate that this results in a legal requirement to provide the data, but hope this will be immensely valuable for clinicians providing paediatric allergy services, for patients as we establish best practice, and for the BSACI in understanding better what resources centres need going forward. 
 
Volunteers have completed the survey which takes 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Explicitly, we do not require colleagues to look up any specific service data - they are asked to approximate responses at certain points. We very much encourage it to be completed using the link to the online questionnaire that was sent out this includes routing which ensures colleagues only have to provide responses to questions that pertain to their service and skips sections that are irrelevant for their trust. The online questionnaire offers the opportunity at the end to print out the completed questionnaire so colleagues can provide a copy for their trusts FoI officer which they will require. For information purposes a hard copy of the survey can be found below. For more information about this please contact info@bsaci.org
