How to pay for your RCR membership

1. Payment by Direct Debit

For members based in the UK and Republic of Ireland, Direct Debit is the easiest and most cost-effective way to pay. We offer two options for paying by Direct Debit:

  • Annual Direct Debit

One lump sum payment due on or immediately after 1 June each year. If you’re setting up a Direct Debit arrangement after 1 June, you’ll be notified of the collection date.

  • Direct Debit by monthly instalments

This allows you to spread the cost of your subscription fee over ten months. Each instalment will be collected on or immediately after the first of each month, beginning 1 June. If you’re setting up the Direct Debit arrangement after 1 June, you’ll be notified of the collection dates if they’re not in line with the standard schedule.

To change your direct debit payment options, please call our Membership Department on +44 (0)20 7406 5953.

At the RCR’s discretion, we may be able to adjust the frequency of your instalments in a case of hardship. Please contact the Membership Department for details.

How to set up a Direct Debit

Direct Debit payments cannot be processed for first time subscription payments. If you are a new member, your initial payment must be made either by cheque or credit or debit card. Your completed Direct Debit mandate can be used for subsequent subscription payments.

We can either send you a form by post or you can download and complete the Direct Debit mandate and card payment form. Please quote your membership number in the reference field, or if you do not know your membership number, write your GMC number at the top of the form. You will need to return the original and signed forms by post as an original signature is required.

Please note that if you have not selected to pay your subscription fee by the annual or instalment methods the default method will be annual. 

2. Payment by card

We accept payments by American Express, Diners MasterCard, Visa, Visa Debit and Maestro accounts. This can be done through the following methods:

Online: pay by credit card via the membership tab when editing your details via myRCR.

By phone: please call +44 (0)20 7406 5953 with your card payment details.

By post: please complete the card payment form and return it to the Membership Department by post.

3. Bank transfer

Please ensure your name and membership number are indicated with the payment. For international payments, please ensure any costs/bank charges are included with the amount due, as your bank may deduct it from the amount payable to the RCR. The RCR's bank details are:
