Membership

As a member - working in the UK or internationally, a paediatrician, nurse or allied health professional - you can contribute to promoting better outcomes for children through your combined experience, knowledge and influence, and will be supported throughout your career.
We offer a range of benefits - from full access to our Child Protection Portal and our Archives journal to event discounts. See what's available to your membership type.
As a member, you can log in to your online account to keep your details up-to-date, search for other members and pay your subscriptions.
Our quarterly member magazine brings you all the latest College news, along with in depth features and regular items on life in paediatrics in the UK and around the world.
Opportunities for us to consult with members have been different during the pandemic, but your feedback matters now more than ever. As RCPCH Treasurer and Membership Committee Chair, Liz Marder reflects on this autumn's member survey.
Almost 3,000 members took the time to respond to our survey, offering your thoughts on our benefits and advocacy work, your working lives and wellbeing, and how we're doing on equality, diversity and inclusion. We present a summary of the key findings and the full report.
We've heard you and we're taking action. We outline our responses to the survey findings - from adapting to COVID-19 and beyond to focusing on retention, from representing members in our campaigns to supporting our diverse international membership.
