BSG Membership Survey


Key Findings 

Overall results for the BSG are positive. The BSG is viewed positively by members, and clearly outperforms all three benchmark data points (overall rating, value for money and likelihood to recommend) Critical to this are the guidelines, educational resources and networking events the BSG provides

Members are likely to describe the BSG as educational (69%), professional (55%) and respected (50%) and feel the BSG does a good job promoting ED&I within the organisation and wider profession

Being part of the professional body promoting gastroenterology and hepatology is one of the key drivers for joining and remaining with the BSG

Members are struggling in several key areas. Members are facing an excessive clinical workload which is not only impacting their work-life balance, but which is also hindering their professional development. More than half (52%) identify struggles in balancing their work and personal life

Nurses want to / need to feel fully included. Whilst their engagement is largely positive, nurses feel less engaged and feel the BSG needs to invite them to be a part of the Society, raising overall awareness of the BSG and its offer.

A greater proportion of Trainees cite inpatient workload, burnout and the demands of specialty vs general medicine as their biggest challenges
