About the BSG
The British Society of Gastroenterology is a registered charity and one of the largest medical gastroenterology and hepatology communities in the UK. A professional organisation, it is a voice for gastroenterology and hepatology in the UK, influencing health policy nationally. It has representation within the British Royal Colleges and consequently the Government and other NHS bodies in the UK. Internationally it is represented at World and European level and has strong links with other member societies across the world.
It has over three thousand members drawn from the ranks of physicians, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, scientists, nurses, dieticians, physiologists and others interested in the field. It supports its members in providing the best care and outcomes for patients with gastrointestinal and liver disease, bringing them early awareness of changes in best practice and new research. Key to this is the annual scientific meeting where hundreds of original papers are presented to audiences of over 2,000 professionals. It is also intimately involved in all aspects of gastroenterology training in Britain.
Research is supported through the promotion of high standards and offering platforms for scientific presentation and publication, and directly through substantial financial contributions to the Society’s affiliated charity, GUTS UK.
The BSG co-owns three journals. Gut is Europe’s highest ranked gastroenterology journal, by citation related impact factor, and the Society’s oldest title. Frontline Gastroenterology focuses on clinical aspects of Gastroenterology. The newest addition to the portfolio is the open access journal BMJ Open Gastroenterology. The Society regularly produces guidelines on aspects of contemporary practice.
