About Frontline Gastroenterology
Aims and Scope
Frontline Gastroenterology aims to accelerate the adoption of best practice in the fields of gastroenterology and hepatology. It is multidisciplinary and focuses on the needs of patients and the professionals caring for them. The principal criterion for publication is potential impact on patient care. FG welcomes articles that address issues from the point an individual thinks they may have a gastroenterological problem, to care in tertiary settings. More specifically, FG publishes articles in five domains: clinical quality, patient experience, workforce, value for money and new ways of working.
FG is co-owned by the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) and BMJ Group.
