BSG Survey Evaluating UK Service Provision for PEG

The BSG have recently completed and published a web-based audit which provides an overview of Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy (PEG) services across the UK. The Audit Committee are very grateful to all the members of the BSG for taking the time to take part in this web-based questionnaire. There was an 83% response rate reflecting the ability of BSG members to produce and participate in high quality audits.

These variations in practice may be important factors accounting for the significant morbidity and mortality associated with this procedure. The full article has recently been published:
