For current FSRH members

Membership of FSRH gives you access to a range of resources and information to help support your ongoing professional development.

Looking for information on how to pay your membership subscription? Here are some options to help you.

Three ways to pay your membership fees

Membership subscriptions (for Diplomate, Member, Fellow and Associate) are payable annually once you have completed your initial qualification.

The information below shows the subscription amounts for 2021. Our subscription year runs from 1 January to 31 December each year. We will send you a reminder by email in late November each year reminding you to pay your subscription.

Diplomate 

£111

Member & Fellow

£235

Associate

£94

Affiliate

£79

Retired

£56

Members are asked to renew their membership in November/December for the following year.

A half-yearly 50% reduced rate is available if joining FSRH as a new member between July-December. If you complete a qualification and join the FSRH from July – December you will be required to pay 50% of the annual membership fee.

How to pay your membership subscription by 31 March to ensure you retain access to all your membership benefits - three ways

1. Via Debit or Credit Card

You can log into 'MyFSRH' by clicking on login at the top right of the website. Then navigate to 'My Payments'. You can pay your membership subscription fee online with a credit or debit card. Please note the annual deadline to pay is 31 March 2021. After that your membership will no longer be current. But you can still log in and pay at any point in the year to reactivate your membership and regain access to your benefits.

Login now to pay your membership fee online

2. Via an annual Direct Debit

You can request a direct debit form from us to set up an annual direct debit, by emailing us at info@fsrh.org. For you to have a direct debit in place for the current year, we need to receive it back with us by 8 January. After that date, it will be set up for the following year's payment and you'll need to pay this year's fee in an alternative way. 

3. Via a bank transfer (BACS)

You can pay your membership subscription via a direct bank transfer. Please ensure you enter your membership number/ID as the reference, otherwise we cannot track your payment to add it to your membership record.

Ceasing of Direct Debit Discount 2019

Following a change by the government to the Consumer Rights (Payment surcharges) Regulations in 2018, we can no longer offer the £5 Direct Debit discount. In recognition of this our trustees have agreed that for 2019 all membership fees will remain at the standard rate that was charged in 2018.

If you already have a Direct Debit set up, you do not need to do anything. We will email you as usual with advance notice of taking the Direct Debit in early January 2019 confirming that we will take the money at the end of that month.

Direct Debit remains the easiest way to pay for your membership fees, If you would like to set up a Direct Debit please contact info@fsrh.org to request a form, completed forms need to be received in the post by the FSRH office by Friday 11 January 2019

Reduced Subscription Rates (maternity, long-term sickness, low earnings)

We offer a 50% reduction for current or lapsed FSRH members on annual membership fees in certain circumstances:

  • Maternity/paternity/adoption leave
  • Long term sickness
  • Those that earn under £23,000 pa

We ask that you submit evidence to support your application. We may ask for more details.

Future years
Should you be eligible for reduced subscriptions the following year or thereafter, you will be required to complete the form on an annual basis. 

Read the information below if you are re-joining us after a break and wish to claim a reduced subscription on previous year's fees.

Re-joining the FSRH

If your membership has lapsed and you would like to re-join FSRH past the 31 March cut-off date for the current membership year or after one or more years, you will be required to pay back your 'missing' years (up to a capped amount of 5 years) to ensure you have continuous membership which is required for recertifying your primary qualification.

FSRH Council believes that membership of the FSRH – and therefore access to the latest clinical guidance, standards, Journal, CPD questions and regular updates – is an important part of the membership and recertification process. The rules surrounding back payment of subscriptions were tightened up in 2015 by FSRH Council. FSRH is a registered charity and is able to provide its services only through the payment of membership subscriptions.

Become a Retired Member of FSRH

Are you a current FSRH member and due to retire from practice soon?

If you are currently an FSRH Member, Diplomate, Associate, Affiliate or Fellow of FSRH and you are retiring from practice, you might like to know more about our retired membership option. The annual 2021 cost is just £56.*

Please note that retired FSRH membership option is only open to existing FSRH members.

What do I receive as a retired member?

Retired membership enables you to stay in touch with the world of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare. You will still receive many of the same benefits that you previously received under your former membership type with a few key differences.

As a retired member you would continue to receive:

  • our BMJ SRH in the post,
  • full access to our webinars,
  • full access to clinical guidance
  • regular membership e-newsletters

You can also apply to sit on FSRH committees. 

Rectification
Please note as a retired member you can no longer recertify your FSRH qualifications. We occasionally have members that retire, leave the FSRH but do end up returning to work for a period and want to recertify their qualifications. In that instance you would need to pay back any missing years of the Fellowship fee as we have a continuous membership policy. 

As a retired member you would also no longer have access to our Members Evidence Request service. You would also be ineligible to vote in Council elections or stand for a seat on our Council.

How do I become a retired member?

If you wish to change to retired membership between 1 April and 31 December, you can change the category of your membership, but we won't be able to offer you a refund for any difference. The retired category and fee will then apply during the following year.  

Income tax relief in respect of annual membership subscriptions

About FSRH membership benefits:

Members Evidence Request - How to access it and submit your request

The Clinical Effectiveness Unit (CEU) provides an evidence-based enquiry service for FSRH members. The CEU will conduct a literature review and summarise the available evidence in relation to a particular medical condition and/or contraceptive method.

The FSRH CEU has produced a quick guide on conducting systematic literature reviews to answer clinical questions (log in to access the guide). This brief and easy-to-use guide aims to support FSRH members to conduct a systematic literature search/review to answer clinical enquiries they may have. The process described in this guidance is adapted from the process used by the FSRH CEU when responding to enquiries made via the members evidence request service.

How do I access the Members Evidence Request?

You can log into our website any time and search the database of queries to find what you are looking for. The video below shows you how to access this Members only resource.

Recertification of your Qualification - free to FSRH members

As a benefit of the FSRH membership there is no recertification fee for the Diploma, Letters of Competence, Faculty Registered Trainers, or the MFSRH/FFSRH.

Recertification is one of our member benefits and supports you professionally in a number of ways.

It helps you to:

  • demonstrate the learning outcomes achieved from your qualification(s) have been maintained
  • show you have the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviour needed to provide safe and effective sexual and reproductive health care (SRH)
  • meet the requirements of commissioners, who often require clinicians to have certified qualifications.

If you need specific information about how to recertify your qualification, please look at our relevant Education and Training webpages.
