Clinical

Guidelines

BSG guidelines deal with the investigation, management and prevention of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.

These Guidelines have been prepared by the British Society of Gastroenterology. They represent a consensus of best practice based on the available evidence at the time of preparation. They may not apply in all situations and should be interpreted in the light of specific clinical situations and resource availability.

BSG Best Practice Clinical Guideline production process accredited by NICE - August 2013

Dr Adam Harris - Chair, BSG Clinical Services & Standards Committee

"British Society of Gastroenterology guidelines aim to improve the standard of practice of clinical gastroenterology and hepatology and represent a consensus of best practice based on the available evidence. Accreditation of the process we use to produce best practice clinical guideline through the NICE Accreditation Programme demonstrates that our guidelines are of a very high quality. We are confident that NICE accreditation will heighten the standing of our guidelines and will lead to further improvement in the quality of patient care."

Designated Funds

Clinical Services Fund

The British Society of Gastroenterology produces and distributes treatment and management guidelines for important gastroenterological and hepatological disorders. Each guideline costs about £5,000. Each year approximately 3 are finalised although they can take several years to write. Therefore sufficient funds have been set aside to enable guidelines to be published for the next 3 years. Expenses which members of the guideline development group incur directly in relation to guideline production are refunded by the BSG. No other money is paid to them.
