BCS accreditation

The Bowel Cancer Screening Programme (BCSP) began operating in England in 2006 with the aim to increase early detection and reduce mortality. To ensure endoscopists working within the programme are of a consistently high standard, all endoscopists must be accredited. JAG provides the quality assurance accreditation of endoscopists on behalf of Public Health England (PHE).

Applicants must be attached to a screening centre and have been approved to participate by the National Cancer Screening Programmes Office. Applicants then undertake a two-part examination process to gain bowel cancer screening accreditation. The first stage of the exam process involves a multiple choice assessment, followed by a practical exam at a JAG approved regional BCSP assessment centre. 

Full details of the assessment process can be found in the accreditation guidelines - https://www.saas.nhs.uk/Downloads.aspx
