COVID-19: An update from the BSG President

The situation is changing rapidly, and predictably, a pandemic has been declared by the WHO. How this will unfold in the UK is difficult to forecast, but the next 4 months will be critical and as a professional membership organisation, and as individuals, we now have the opportunity to choose how to react.

Whilst as a charity we must do all we can to ensure the sustainability of the BSG organisation, as doctors and health care professionals, we have an ethical duty of care to our patients and to our colleagues in the current crisis. With this in mind, taking the right decision early, rather than creating further uncertainty is the correct thing to do.

Over the last 3 weeks, the BSG senior team have considered this carefully and have decided that the ethical and correct action is to postpone BSG2020 until 8-11 February 2021.

We already have an excellent programme arranged and hope that our GI and Hepatology community will come together to celebrate the best of our specialty, once we have supported the current health care priorities in our own hospitals in the UK.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support at this time.

As ever, last year’s conference programme and exhibition area were evaluated as good or excellent by 99% of delegates. In 2021, we will continue to build on the successes of previous years, launching with an all-inclusive welcome reception within the exhibition hall in the late afternoon of Monday 8th February. The main programme will run from 9th – 11th February. The programme will include basic and clinical science symposia as well as state-of-the-art lectures from international and UK speakers, clinical updates, a Translational Science Masterclass and moderated poster rounds, all complemented by a fully integrated industry-supported programme.

This year the programme will feature a day of live endoscopy streamed from Leeds Hospital, and international collaborations in endoscopy and inflammatory bowel disease with European partners. Now in its fourth year, the hands-on Endoscopy Village will take place throughout the week located within the exhibition area.
