The BSG Clinical Services & Standards Committee has initiated and promotes this new permanent feature of service success stories from around the country.
The aim is to share experiences of how our colleagues have coped with challenges to the service and learn from each other. Our authors are happy to be contacted directly and to share details of what they did. We hope that you will find this useful.
If you have a service success story that you would like to share, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information. I am also happy to hear any comments that you may have about our feature."
