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, the society has since grown to the dynamic, active society it is today, with a membership of over a thousand consultants, trainees, specialist nurse practitioners, GPs and students.

BSGE exists not only to serve its members, but also to promote knowledge and understanding of the endoscopic approach to diagnosis and treatment to our patients, the public and those that form healthcare policy so that we can make a difference to women’s health and wellbeing.
