The BSGNA want to hear your views on how we can improve value to our membership. Please can you to take a little time to complete a quick survey to help inform us about your views, this should only take a few minutes.
The BSG conference is coming up in June and we invite BSGNA members to submit applications (see attached form below) to join our committee. Our overall aim is to improve patient care by working with our medical and nursing colleagues, both within the BSG and externally with other organisations who share the interests of our patients. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a national group and work with like-minded people to help, support and develop professional practices to improve patient care within endoscopy and gastroenterology.
You would be committing your time to attend meetings twice a year, one in London at BSG Headquarters and again at the BSG conference meeting in June. We also arrange teleconference calls to allow our committee to progress committee work. As a committee member you will be expected to chair sessions at conference, help with poster rounds and promote good practice and quality patient care.
Members will be elected by a ballot at our AGM on the 20th June in Manchester and will serve for a period of three years.

Calling All GI Nurses to Endolive UK 2017 - Just 6 weeks to go!
Friday, 20 January 2017 13:17
On behalf of the BSGNA I am delighted to invite you to Endolive UK 2017. The first Endolive meeting in 2015 was the largest live endoscopy meeting ever held in the UK with more than 500 delegates. The two day meeting will be held at the Birmingham ICC with live links to two of the UK's premier endoscopic centres, St Mark's in London and Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
The very best of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy will be demonstrated with a real focus on quality and this year we have a dedicated nurse forum. There are sessions to address;
- Competencies in GI nursing
- GI workforce
- Optimising outcomes for our patients
We aim to emphasise the importance of the team approach to ensure patients experience a quality endoscopy. We have also introduced the option of a team booking. Registration details can be found in the attached flyer.
We hope the meeting will bring us all up to date with the latest advances in endoscopic technique, technology and practice.
