The British Society of Gastroenterology is a registered charity and one of the largest medical gastroenterology and hepatology communities in the UK.  A professional organisation, it is a voice for gastroenterology and hepatology in the UK, influencing health policy nationally.

It has over three thousand members drawn from the ranks of physicians, surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, scientists, nurses, dieticians, physiologists and others interested in the field. It supports its members in providing the best care and outcomes for patients with gastrointestinal and liver disease, bringing them early awareness of changes in best practice and new research.

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”.
