Our aim is to provide our members with the necessary support to deliver the highest standard of care in echocardiography. We focus on providing accreditation and education and working with the echo community to meet their needs.
The British Society of Echocardiography is an incorporated charity governed by its Memorandum and Articles. It is governed by a President and Board of Trustees. The Trustees are also the Company Directors.
The work of the Society is directed and run by the Council and through sub-committees covering its key areas of focus, namely accreditation, departmental accreditation and standards, education and communications. There is also a standing committee comprising the Honorary Officers, with monthly communication by teleconference.
