Welcome to the BSGE Endometriosis Centres Database

This database is for the use of clinicians working in BSGE Accredited Endometriosis Centres and in Provisional Endometriosis Centres aspiring to become fully accredited.
It can only be accessed by username and password issued by the BSGE to active Endometriosis Centres. The database is anonymised and it is imperative that the user keeps a local copy or record of the correct patient details mapped to the unique BSGE identification number.
This information is not stored elsewhere.

It is an requirement of accredited centres to enter data on patients with severe endometriosis where the surgery includes dissection of the para-rectal space. Following submission of data, this is annually processed nationally and reported back to the Centres.

This data, including follow up rates, forms parts of a local and national dataset for women. Some data are published for patients, and in 2018 we have published the largest multicentre study involving data of nearly 5,000 women from this cohort of patients.
Whilst this database serves as a contributor to a clinical governance framework, it does not regulate or provide close quality assurance of individual surgical practice, or act as an absolute guarantee or arbiter of ongoing appropriate of safe practice.
Such monitoring and assessment remains under the jurisdiction of local governance processes


The British Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy exists to improve standards, promote training and encourage the exchange of information in minimal access surgery techniques for women with gynaecological problems.
Originally founded in 1989 by a small group of consultant gynaecologists, the society has since grown to the dynamic, active society it is today, with a membership of over a thousand consultants, trainees, specialist nurse practitioners, GPs and students.
BSGE exists not only to serve its members, but also to promote knowledge and understanding of the endoscopic approach to diagnosis and treatment to our patients, the public and those that form healthcare policy so that we can make a difference to women’s health and wellbeing.
