12 centres across the Midlands took part in an audit of Egg Allergy management across the Midlands region. We hoped that as a large region across the midlands we might be able to get some insight into the ways in which egg allergy is managed between all of the various hospitals and units and to see if there is good correlation with the BSACI guidelines from 2010.
The results of the audit can be seen by clicking here and as you can see there were some excellent areas of practice accross the region, for example 86% children with egg allergy were given written management plans and SPT was first line investigation in 90% of centres.
Please take the time have a look at the presentation. If you have any questions regarding the audit results you can contact Donna Traves
