Dr Cathryn Edwards, President of the British Society of Gastroenterology, welcomed the opportunity to meet with Her Excellency Sheikh Hasina, Prime Minister of Bangladesh today. Dr Edwards explained the importance of the BSG in the UK, and its role in contributing to the delivery of training and clinical best practice standards in Gastroenterology and Hepatology, along with facilitating specialty research.

The BSG has established strong links with the Bangladesh Gastroenterology Society (BGS) over the past seven years. It has recently agreed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Bangladesh Gastroenterology Society with the aim of supporting BGS colleagues to establish a National Training Programme for Endoscopy based at the Sheikh Rasel GastroLiver Institute & Hospital at Mohakhali in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
