BGS National Offices

Members of the British Geriatrics Society are mostly based in hospitals and university hospitals throughout the UK, although there are some who work increasingly in community settings.

In recognition of the increasing devolved structure of government in the United Kingdom, the Society is quite active at national level, with each of the devolved nations having their own Councils. There are the National Councils of BGS England, Cymru/Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Each Nation runs their own meetings and engages with governmental authorities at their own level.

Should you require more information about your country's activities, please contact the appropriate officer listed below. To publicise a national event, please contact Geraint Collingridge, Events Manager or consult the BGS Events menu above.
