  • BSG Annual Report 2015-2016

    BSG Annual Report 2016

    We are delighted to present the 2015-2016 BSG Annual Review – the first we have published for some five years – as an illustration of the range of activities that the Society undertakes on your behalf. It has always seemed to us that one of the greatest attractions of gastroenterology as a specialty is its sheer breadth. Some of what we do will be familiar but certainly one of our aims is to showcase some of the less well-known areas of our activity.
