BSGAR Charity Status - announcement

BSGAR is now a registered charity recognised for pre-eminence in education. Our responsibility as a charity is to deliver public benefit through the objects of our charity which are;

To relieve sickness, to protect and preserve the health of the public, and to advance education and research into the care of patients with abdominal disease by:
a.      Improving the practice and development of gastrointestinal and abdominal radiology
b.     The education and training of radiologists and other medical professionals in gastrointestinal and abdominal radiology
c.      Providing a forum for imaging, intervention and research ensuring the useful results of any research are disseminated to the public

There are practical advantages to our Society also, in terms of tax concessions, access to charitable funding and grants for our activities, the ability to employ support staff, and greater convenience and financial freedom in our banking and transactions.

There is still a lot of work to do as we transition from sole trader to charity. Our committee along with our new trustees will be steering this. The new trust board members will be well known to many of you:-

Chair, Dr Andrea Phillips, Bath
Professor Vicky Goh, London
Professor Stuart Taylor, London
Dr Andrew Lowe, Taunton
Dr Raneem Albazaz, Leeds
Dr Ian Zealley, Dundee, ex officio as BSGAR President

The first meeting of the board will be shortly. We will keep you informed of progress through the members forum so please opt in (via your membership account) to receive these messages if you don’t do so already.
