What happens if I have arrears to pay and I want to start a quarterly direct debit?
Any arrears from previous membership years will be collected in full in the first quarterly payment along with the first quarterly instalment. From then on, your subscription will be divided into quarters according to how many quarterly membership payments you need to pay.
How will my direct debit appear on my bank statement?
It will appear as ’Royal College of Physicians’.
Do I need a UK bank account to set up a direct debit?
Yes – we only accept direct debits from UK bank accounts.
I am moving abroad – what will happen to my direct debit?
As long as you still have an active UK bank account you can continue to pay by quarterly or annual direct debit irrespective of where you are located.
How do I switch back to annual direct debit payments?
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make this change for you. You would be required to pay the balance outstanding for the remainder of your subscriptions year.
Is there a maternity leave concession?
We offer a 50% rate to members and fellows on maternity leave.
Please contact the membership team for more information about concessions, or to register your subscription concession. All matters are dealt with confidentially.
