Guidelines and recent publications

We have great pleasure in presenting our most recently developed Cervical and Vulval cancer guidelines

It is a great pleasure to present to you our most recently developed Cervical and Vulval cancer guidelines. These will be submitted for publication in the European Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Biology, similarly to the Ovarian and Endometrial Cancer guidelines.

We wish to sincerely thank the excellent multidisciplinary team of national and international experts who helped us develop and review these guidelines and of course our members all for the very constructive comments and critical review.

Sentinel Consensus Document for Vulval, Endometrial and Cervical Cancer BGCS

The BGCS is pleased to present these consensus statements on the use of sentinel lymph node staging in the management of cervical, endometrial and vulval malignancies. The statement reflects an analysis of the published evidence assessing this methodology combined with review of expert opinion and experience, and involved a formal “Delphi” process to achieve specialist consensus. The statement will inform forthcoming BGCS clinical guidelines for the management of these diseases, and we hope that they will also inform future NHS England Specialist Commissioning specifications and commissioning guidelines from the NHS in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We would like to thank the specialist working group for the time and effort which went into developing these consensus statements, and particularly Christina Fotopoulou, Chair of the BGCS Guidelines Subgroup for leading the process.

Consensus document on risk stratified follow up pathways in the management of ovarian, cervical, endometrial and vulval malignancies

The BGCS is pleased to present a consensus document on risk-stratified follow-up pathways in the management of ovarian, cervical, endometrial and vulval malignancies. The statement reflects an analysis of the published evidence assessing the evidence for modernised, alternative follow-up strategies, combined with review of expert opinion and experience, in order to achieve specialist consensus. The statement will inform forthcoming BGCS clinical guidelines for the management of these diseases, and we hope that they will also inform future NHS England Specialist Commissioning specifications and commissioning guidelines from the NHS in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We would like to thank the specialist working group for the time and effort which went into developing this document, and particularly Christina Fotopoulou, Chair of the BGCS Guidelines Subgroup for leading the process.
