How to pay my 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. Fellows and members have the option to pay in ten instalments by direct debit from a UK bank account. You’ll receive a minimum of four weeks' notice via email prior to the first collection in any subscription year.

We offer two options for a payment 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 nearest collection date.

Direct Debit by monthly instalments

This allows you to spread the cost of your subscription fee over ten months. The ten instalments are 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.

In order to change your direct debit from monthly to annual payment, or vice versa. There is no need to contact your bank, please call our Membership Department on +44 (0)20 7406 5951 who will be able to advise you.

In case of hardship, you can contact us to set up Direct Debit payments in more frequent instalments. Please note that this is a discretionary service. Kindly contact the Membership Department for details.

How to set up a Direct Debit

We can either send you a form by post or you can download and complete the Direct Debit mandate forms at the top of the page quoting your membership number in the reference field. If you do not know your membership number, please write your GMC number at the top of the form. An original signature is required, hence, you need to return the original and signed forms by post. Please note, Direct Debit payments cannot be processed for first subscription payments. If you are joining your initial payment must be made either by cheque or credit or debit card only. Your completed Direct Debit mandate will be used for subsequent subscription payments.

2. Payment by card

We accept payments by American Express, Diners MasterCard, Visa, Visa Debit and Maestro accounts.

Online: If you do not pay your subscription by either cheque or bank transfer you have an alternative option to pay by Credit Card online via your myRCR page under the Membership tab.
