Each book/DVD comes with a return address label.
For student members, foundation doctors (FY1 and FY2), and those registered with the BMA's Refugee Doctor Initiative, this is a reply paid label so posting items back to us is free.
Qualified members of the BMA who have completed their foundation years training get a standard return address label and need to pay the return postage costs themselves.
We recommend to all members that they get a 'proof of postage' certificate when sending books back to us.
You can get these free at any Post Office. (You will be liable to pay for the replacement cost of any books that are lost in the mail on their return to us if you do not have a 'proof of postage' certificate.)
You can also return books at BMA House, even when the library is closed.
We have a Book Return Box which is located just inside the Security Lodge entrance at BMA House.
The Security Lodge is staffed around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so books can be returned via this method at any time.
Any books placed in the Book Return Box are collected by Library staff the morning of the next working day and are immediately discharged from your borrower record.
If you have any queries about using the Book Return Box or any other issue concerning the return of books please telephone us on 020 7383 6625 or email us at [email protected].
