The BSG runs an annual scientific meeting at which many hundred original papers are presented to audiences approaching 2600 professionals. It is also intimately involved in all aspects of training of British gastroenterology and to original research in the field. Research is supported indirectly through the promotion of high standards and offering platforms for scientific presentation and publication, and directly through substantial financial contributions to the Society’s affiliated charity, Guts UK.
The BSG co-owns three journals. Gut is Europe’s highest-ranked gastroenterology journal, by citation-related impact factor, and the Society’s oldest title. Frontline Gastroenterology focuses on clinical aspects of Gastroenterology. The newest addition to the portfolio is the open-access journal BMJ Open Gastroenterology. The Society regularly produces guidelines on aspects of contemporary practice.
While the Society exists for the promotion of the discipline it is not itself able to provide medical advice or to recommend individual practitioners. Prospective patients are advised to consult their own medical advisers with a view to referral to a member of the Society.
