Your membership fees will change
The current economic climate has presented some unusual inflationary pressures causing challenges for everyone, including the College. We work hard to keep subscription fees low--there was a reduction in fees for 2022 and a 4% increase for 2023. In order to continue providing the valuable services our members deserve we need to apply a 6% increase to subscriptions fees for 2024. This is broadly in line with the current rate of inflation.

Renewing your membership
Your membership is due for renewal in January 2024. In December we will write to you with information on the exact amount to pay. You can pay by direct debit (UK only), card or via bank transfer. Find our more about when to pay, how to pay, how to apply for concessions, refunds, discounts and tax relief on Membership subscriptions and how to pay.
Spread the cost
You can spread the cost of your membership and opt-in for a monthly direct debit at no additional cost if you have a UK bank account. Login to your RCPCH online account to set this up.
We encourage you to apply for a concession if it applies to you:
- Less than full-time working (25% off)
- Membership of another UK Medical College (25% off)
- Moving outside of the UK
- Maternity, shared parental or adoption leave
- Our-of-programme experience - OOPC, OOPE, OOPR, OOPT
- Financial hardship (due to low or no salary, unemployment or ill health)
** If you have received a concession already for 2023, you DO NOT need to re-apply, as the concession will be rolled over into your 2024 membership rate.
** If you have received a Financial hardship concession in 2023, then you would need to re-apply.
Reduce the cost of your subscription fee through tax relief if you are a UK taxpayer.
