The British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) was founded in 1937 by Sir Arthur Hurst as a Gastroenterological Club with just 36 members. Sir Arthur Hurst became the first President. At that time, its objectives were described as “the advancement of gastroenterology and promotion of friendship amongst those who have a special interest in the disorders of the alimentary tract”.

From the early days, it maintained strong links with both International and other complementary societies, and over the decades these have merged with the BSG to create the more diverse society it is today.
