Applications for the BSG Service Development prize is now open with the closing date on 31/3/19. This is for an individual or team that has made a demonstrable impact on patient care by innovative service improvement. The winner will receive £250 with the award being presented at the Tuesday Plenary session of the BSG meeting this year. The winning submission could be developed into a publication in Frontline Gastroenterology, subject to peer review. It will also be published on our website as a service success story. Applying for awards can spread great ideas, boost morale, and ultimately improve care. We hope you will apply.
