The British Association for Allied Health Professionals in Liver (BAAL) is an affiliated group of the British Association for the Study of the Liver (BASL).

The group brings together specialist hepatology AHP’s from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

BAAL is a professional group for Allied Health Professionals (AHP’s) specialising or working with patients with liver conditions. The aim of BAAL is to promote excellence through the provision of AHP care to all patients with liver disorders. Although in its infancy, BAAL recognises the need to promote awareness of the AHP role within Hepatology.  Members will have the opportunity to receive expert learning, peer-support, and use the platform to share research and network with others within this field.

The short term aims of the group are to improve AHP assessment, treatment, and management to this cohort, with a long term strategy to formulate National guidelines and clinical standards across the UK.
