This year we highlighted allergy and airway management across the life course in our President’s plenary with speakers Professor Mika Makela from Finland, Dr Anna Murphy from Leicester and Professor Stephen Durham fromLondon. Jon Cruddas MP spoke about ‘Meeting the Challenge of the National Allergy Crisis’ and our inspiring speakers spoke about ‘Overcoming Inequalities’ and how we can bring about change. The BSACI and ITN Industry Productions report on ‘Anaphylaxis’ with a focus on the ‘Spare pens in schools’ initiative was launched. We focused on respiratory allergy with a plenary on optimising respiratory capacity for patients and discussed the impact of environmental allergens in asthma control. We dedicated a session to ethics in allergy and kept our panel questions after each speaker and re-designed our practical workshops to fit an online platform and had a co-badged session with The British Society of Cutaneous Allergy on patch testing in atopics and oromucosal reactions.
Dr Glenis Scadding delivered this year’s Jack Pepys Lecture and Dr Michael Perkin presented The Harry Morrow Brown Lecture in our Celebrating Excellence session. Congratulations to Dr Andrew Clark who received this year’s William Frankland Award for outstanding services to UK clinical allergy. We had an array of amazing abstracts submitted this year and awarded our prestigious Barry Kay award in each of the five abstract categories. BSACI received two excellent nominations this year for BSACI President Elect, Professor Graham Roberts and Dr Andrew Clark. This went to an election and Professor Graham Roberts has been elected as the new President Elect and will take up the post of President in October 2021.
CPD accreditation is in the process of being finalised and certificates of attendance will be forwarded to all attendees soon.
