The British Gynaecological Cancer Society (BGCS) is a society of professionals dedicated to improving the care provided to patients with gynaecological cancers.
Our members consist of medical practitioners, clinical nurse specialists and other allied professionals, including scientists who have an interest in gynaecological cancers. We represent trainees, nurses, unit leads, oncologists, pathologists and radiologists and over 400 members regularly attend our annual conference.
Through our active subgroups we focus on commissioning, guideline development, training and IT matters and we provide a united voice at the highest level.
We have produced national guidance on the management of uterine and ovarian cancer, vulvar cancer (joint with the RCOG) and more recently, we have developed draft service specifications for gynaecological cancer services. We continue to support an annual trainees meeting in Oxford. We also offer bursaries for nursing colleagues attending the annual conference and provide expert representation to NICE on consultation documents ensuring that clinicians are at the very heart of the development of the new national ovarian cancer registry.
