We're there when you need us.
We've been helping doctors for 190 years, so we know how it is.
You need to be able to focus on your job or study whilst getting support for everything else that comes with being or becoming a doctor.
Our members have complete access to practical information, mentoring and support. Our resources cover contract checking, communication skills, management, and leadership.
It's not just about workplace support, we also provide advice for your life outside of work and after your career, including financial, legal and pensions advice.
We'll look after you. You look after your patients.
We represent you both individually and collectively, negotiating your pay and rights, and supporting you at work.
As a recognised trade union for UK doctors, no one better understands your day-to-day lives.
We're here to help you from the moment you join us. If you have a need that predates your BMA membership, assistance may be limited to telephone and email service only. Contact the BMA to discuss any issue you have and we'll let you know where you stand.
Joining for one month only is not recommended as you won't be guaranteed continued support and workplace protection. However, you can leave after one calendar month, if you choose. BMA membership is a reoccurring yearly membership. The subscription year runs from 1 October to 30 September.
We offer a discount for spouses/partners of BMA members. If you're on maternity leave, on lower income or having a career break, going overseas, a doctor new to the UK or permanently retired, we can offer a reduced subscription rate depending on your circumstances. After 50 years of membership, we give it to you for free.
As a BMA member, you may be eligible to claim tax back from your subscription.
We only offer direct debit as a payment option when joining online, with the ability to pay monthly or annually. You can discuss other payment options with our Membership Services team at [email protected] or by calling 0300 123 1233.
If you are unable to join online, please email [email protected] or call us on 0300 123 1233.
