In the face of a major shift in practice due to COVID-19, it is vital for specialist allergy and immunology services to develop a robust local strategy that will allow provision of services to patients with allergic and immunological conditions in a safe and effective manner, making efficient use of the limited resources we have, while protecting the health of patients and staff.  As a result we have been working on this ‘Service Recovery Document’  document which outlines some general principles which may be helpful in developing ways to achieve this locally, taking into account the complex nature of specialist service provision.

Key Constraints for IMMUNOLOGY Service Provision

A survey was distributed by IQAS and QPIDS, to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on allergy and immunology services.  The responses came from all around the country and are below for each service.  BSACI would like to thank Andrew Whyte and in particular Professor M. Thirumala Krishna (IQAS Clinical Lead), Dr Claire Bethune (QPIDS Clinical Lead), and the RCP team for coordinating the survey and collating the results.
