  • ACCEA 2017

    DEADLINE for applications for BSG support for NEW ACCEA AWARDS is 09:00 WEDNESDAY 15th MARCH 2017

    The 2017 ACCEA success round opens on Tuesday 28th February 2017 and closes on Tuesday 25th April 2017 at 17:00

    The BSG will need to have completed the process of selecting those applicants who will receive our support well before then.

    If you wish to be considered for a national award in the 2017 round and you would like to seek BSG support, you should submit a CVQ to Janet Bassett on j.bassett@bsg.org.uk at the BSG. The closing date for applications for BSG support will be 09:00 Wednesday 15th March 2017. Please understand that in fairness to all applicants, late submissions will not be considered.

    When submitting your application to the BSG, please provide the name of an individual who has agreed to write your supporting citation. Please note: we will need to request a citation for every applicant even if the member is not successful in gaining BSG support, in order to meet the tight deadlines which ACCEA impose.

    ACCEA regard the citations provided by the BSG as important: they give added value to the process. The citation helps clarify information in the application and can put an individual's contribution into the wider context.

    Dr Cathryn Edwards,
    President-elect BSG

  • BSG Strategy: 2016 - 2021

    This document is intended to provide an overview of the strategic approach the BSG will take to its purpose and activities. It is intended to be a high level document to support its members, leadership and staff to meet the charity's objectives.

    The overarching strategy is intended to tie together and support more detailed strategic plans and specific activity in a range of key areas identified. It is not a static document and will be reviewed regularly to ensure it meets its original objectives and reflects the views of patients, members and Trustees.

    A one, three and five year approach is taken in identifying strategic objectives and the strategy will be reviewed annually by the BSG Trustees and Executive, and in consultation with the membership through Council as well as wider engagement activity.

    Please find below a one page summary, the full document can be found by logging in to the Members' area.

  • Symptoms following pelvic radiotherapy

    For as many as 500,000 people the end of their cancer treatment doesn't mean the end of their cancer journey, with around 90,000 people experiencing chronic changes in lower gastrointestinal function including diarrhoea, faecal incontinence, urgency, flatulence, bleeding, hernia, adhesions, strictures, pain and fistula. BSG and Macmillan are working together to ensure those involved in the potential treatment and care of people with these issues are equipped with the relevant resources and information to support their patients. Macmillan are also working to empower patients to raise these often debilitating and embarrassing issues with health care professionals.
