Payment for your subscription can be made via:

  • From 2021 the College uses the World Bank list of Low-Income Countries and Lower middle Income countries to provide discounted subscriptions to members in those countries.
  • New Parents Leave
    Members on maternity leave are entitled to one membership subscription calendar year at no cost. This can be the year in which their new parent leave begins or may be applied to the following year if the new parent leave spans across calendar years. We also provide a period of membership at no cost for any periods of adoption or paternity leave greater than one month. A copy of the MATB1 Form (or equivalent) is required, only one discounted subscription can be claimed per period of new parents leave.
    This new policy was agreed at Council 8th June 2023 and is applicable to members commencing leave from 1st January 2023. Previous to this members received a 50% reduction on subscriptions.
  • There is a 50% reduction for UK based members working LTFT who are earning less than £35K.
  • A membership ‘freeze’ is available for any member leaving medicine to undertake voluntary work or who is unable to work due to ill health. This cost is £20 (excluding EMJ) to cover a period up to 12 months.
  • Members joining through the year are charged a pro-rated amount based on the month from when their membership commences.
  • Refunds or adjustments to membership subscriptions due to changes in circumstances and addition/removal of services will be based on months of the year. Refunds are not generally given to members upon resignation from the College.
  • RCEM has been approved by HRMC under section 201 Income and Corporation Taxes Act 1968, which means that Fellows and Members who pay UK taxes are able to claim tax relief on membership subscriptions at the highest marginal rate of tax. Further information can be accessed via: tax-relief-for-employees
