In 1930 the Asthma Research Club was established by a group of distinguished clinicians, by 1948 the society had been reformed the British Association of Allergists; and in 1962 it changed its name yet again to the British Allergy Society. Under the proper guidance of such distinguished members as Dr. Bill Frankland MBE, Professor Jack Pepys, and Sir Cyril Clarke, interest in allergy between both clinicians and scientists grew. In the 1970s there was an explosion of interest in the immunological dynamics of allergic disease and a need was perceived for widening the Society's scope and Clinical Immunology did not cooperate into the title. Thus the BSACI was born in 1973. The BSACI's main objective throughout its path is to enhance the management of allergies and related diseases of the immune system in the United Kingdom, with the aim of education, training, and research. As allergy embraces many subspecialties in medicine, the BSACI decided to set up special interest groups with repeal to promote understanding of the contribution of Allergy to diseases within these disciplines and thus enhance management.
In addition, regular regional meetings are arranged across the UK for primary and secondary care professionals to raise up awareness in Allergy and initiate education focused on the community practice of this specialty.Read More»
