Back in 2018, we released a survey that looked at the quality of allergy care in the UK. The survey was open for six months and 1217 people responded; 562 adults and 655 parents/carers on behalf of their child/children.
Why did we do this survey?
We are interested in understanding more about the standard of care received by patients, their perceptions of the time it took to be referred, their level of understanding of the procedure they need to follow in the event of needing to use their Adrenaline Auto Injectors and their levels of confidence about how and when to use it.
Results of the survey can be viewed in the four posters below:
- Adrenaline autoinjector (AAI) provision and training among adult patients in the UK
- Anaphylaxis care and follow-up among adult patients in the UK
- Adrenaline autoinjector (AAI) provision and training among paediatric patients in the UK
- Anaphylaxis care and follow-up among paediatric patients in the UK
We now plan to use the responses from the survey to better understand the standard of care received by people living with allergies in the UK. We will use the results to identify areas of concern and aim to develop our support and information services to meet them.
This survey was supported by an educational grant from ALK-Abelló.
