Welcome to BSGE

The British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy exists to improve standards, promote training and encourage the exchange of information in minimal access surgery techniques for women with gynaecological problems.
Originally founded in 1989 by a small group of consultant gynaecologists keen to promote the benefits of minimal access (‘keyhole’) surgery for their patients, the society has since grown to over 500 members. These include specialist nurse practitioners, GP’s, gynaecological consultants and their trainees. In 2000, BSGE was granted charitable status.
BSGE exists not only to serve its members, but also to promote knowledge and understanding of the endoscopic approach to diagnosis and treatment to a wider public, including patients and those responsible for the formulation of healthcare policy.
To achieve this we work closely with partner organisations, most notably The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, as well as The European Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy, and also partners in industry on whom we rely for the many technological advances which make possible so much of what we can do for our patients.
This new website reflects the determination of the BSGE to build on past success, for the benefit of our members and our patients alike. It is still in its infancy and developing all the time. If you have ideas on how to improve the site we would welcome your suggestions and very much look forward to hearing from you.
