Categories and rates

Membership rates 2023-24

Our membership year runs from 1 July 2023 to 30 June 2024. Full year membership fees are listed below. If you join mid year the membership fee will be worked out on a pro rata basis based on the month you join. The easiest way to pay is by Direct Debit (UK and Irish members only) and you can spread the cost and pay quarterly (UK members only).

We have six main categories of membership and membership fees are based on job roles within those categories, see the breakdown of fees below. If you have any questions on the category of member you are eligible for please email our membership team [email protected].

We offer discounts for those on maternity/paternity leave, for members working LTFT hours and for members experiencing a change in circumstances.

Remember you can claim tax relief on your membership fees each year if they are relevant to your job role – you can find out more on the HMRC website.

“Membership has kept me in touch with the wider field of anaesthesia. This is important to me working in a specialist field”
