Updated Membership Pricing 2020

Changes to Membership Categories and Pricing

After several years without any increases in membership prices, last year the Council approved a price increase of 10% for 2020 and 2021.

The main objective for the BSG was to create a simplified pricing structure, easier for our members to understand while still providing the same excellent member benefits and levels of support. Some of the key benefits that are universal across all membership categories are highlighted below:

  • Up to date information through Guidelines and Guidance
  • Access to free or discounted webinars
  • Professional development and networking opportunities
  • Discounted access to training including our Annual Meeting
  • Free journals, depending on your membership level

The discount of up to 33% off all BSG endorsed events, including the Annual Meeting, for example, is excellent value and the frequency of our events allows you to stay abreast of all the latest in the world of gastroenterology and hepatology, making BSG membership very good value.

Below are the key takeaways from the changes to pricing that we have decided to implement:

  • Except for Taster Membership and International – the headline price of all membership fees has gone DOWN by between 2% and 14%
  • However, we have removed the DD discount for all membership classes. In some categories, this was the equivalent of a 13% discount
  • But we have capped the price increase for Nurses and Trainees to 3%. Any member who currently pays by credit card will see their membership fee reduced by 3%. For those that currently pay by DD there will be a 3% increase
  • We have merged AGIP and AHP into One class with 2 sub-classes – 6PA+ and 5PA-
  • The GP Class has been merged with NCCG
  • Our membership prices are still substantially lower than many comparable societies


Please see the table below for the full list of consolidated categories and membership prices:
