In 2012 the BAD invited a range of professionals and patient representatives to form a multidisciplinary Working Party Group (WPG). The British Society for Cutaneous Allergy (BSCA) President was nominated as Chair of the WPG.
The remit of this new WPG is to provide a consensus for measurable standards for cutaneous allergy service provision in the UK. The members from around the UK were chosen for their specialist expertise in patch testing as well as from a range of specialtiesthat are important in supporting a cutaneous allergy service, together with relevant patient involvement.
Our approach to the development of current and pending service guidance is based on the core principles and methods guide set out by the NICE for developing service guidance to meet its accreditation requirements.
