Audit is important to ensure improvement in clinical standards and also for personal development and appraisal. The BSACI’s Standards of Care Committee (SOCC) is promoting and supporting the development and execution of national audits in Allergy. Dr MT Krishna, a member of SOCC, has taken the lead on this activity and has published audits on the management of venom allergy and on the clinical practice for beta-lactam hypersensitivity in the UK (see details below). All BSACI members working in NHS allergy services should contribute to the BSACI national audits to facilitate an accurate reflection of UK clinical practice and eventually improve the clinical care delivered to our patients. Dr Krishna has formulated the BSACI’s National Audit Manual.
