BGS groups

In addition to the professional groups listed below, the Society acknowledges the broad scope of geriatric care. Many geriatricians, nurses and therapists have, in addition to the broad spectrum of expertise in medicine and care of older patients, chosen to practise or research specific clinical and management areas.  The Society's Special Interest Groups (SIGS) include a range or sub-specialisms from anaemia to community geriatrics. The SIGs respond to government consultation documents, and publish guidelines and policy statements. 

The SIGs include physicians, scientists and allied health professionals both within and outside the BGS. Through its SIGs the Society offers advice to government agencies, drawing on a wide range of expertise. They serve as the Society’s source of clinical innovation, deriving and maintaining high standards of clinical care, and disseminating specialist knowledge.
