This article focuses on a study that explores as how British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG) polyp follow up guidelines will affect people. The study aimed to assess whether researchers' unit adhered to, and the potential impact of, the 2002 BSG Adenoma Surveillance Guidelines. The study demonstrates the need to develop a more robust adenoma follow up booking procedure, to prevent inappropriate recalls and to prevent patients being lost to follow up, with consequent risk of developing colorectal cancer. Adherence to BSG guidelines would considerably reduce both the number and the frequency of follow up surveillance colonoscopies, allowing more appropriate allocation of endoscopic resources.
