GastroCycle 2014 is an initiative organised in collaboration with the BSG Trainees Section and Skyline Events to raise funds for the BSG's sister charity Core and support its work fighting diseases of the gut, liver and pancreas. A group of 50 riders will set off from the BSG's office in Regent's Park and arrive at Manchester's GMEX approximately 240 miles later in time for the BSG 2014 annual meeting. They wll be joined during the final leg by Olympic gold medal winner, Chris Boardman MBE.
Alcohol-Related Disease: meeting the challenge of improved quality of care and better use of resources sets out a practical plan for implementing a national strategy to improve services for patients that repeatedly attend hospital because of their dependence on alcohol and associated health problems. Its recommendations aim to improve the effectiveness of hospital services for patients who are alcohol dependent and who present at hospital in several ways, often through A&E. The paper calls for a dedicated Alcohol Team and a lead clinician at consultant level. It suggests ways of coordinating alcohol policies across hospitals and local areas.
Launched at the 2013 BSG Annual Meeting in Glasgow on 26th June, the IBD Registry will provide the first ever UK-wide repository of anonymised IBD adult and paediatric patient data for prospective audit and research purposes.

BSG Commissioning Guidance
Together with a range of professional and patient group partners - BAPEN, BASL, the IBS Network, Crohn's & Colitis UK, Coeliac UK and British Liver Trust - the BSG has published commissioning guidance. We hope this will guide commissioners in developing services and assist our members in engaging with commissioners.
UK IBD Registry
The IBD Registry will provide a means of collecting anonymised IBD patient data from across the UK for the first time. It will be fed by clinical information entered via a choice of methods: existing systems, a web portal, and a bespoke patient management system (PMS) that facilitates data entry during the consultation.
Our aim is that the UK IBD Registry dataset will not only become a unique clinical and research resource, but also help inform national service development planning and fulfil national audit, IBD standards and quality improvement benchmarks. Moreover, local reports will provide immediate benefits to clinical teams, patients and commissioners, for example by demonstrating quality for revalidation and reporting. The PMS also features a summary screen with all major aspects of a patient's disease shown at a glance, and patient-centred documents that are generated during the consultation.

The BSG has launched a taster membership scheme for medical students/foundation doctors . Benefits of this scheme include access to a tailored microsite on the BSG website, with educational content, political commentary and an informal mentoring scheme.
