Senior Fellows Forum

We are committed to supporting you at all stages of your career. The Senior Fellows Forum was created for all members aged 55 and over who have retired from clinical practice, or are approaching that transition. Once retired, you are eligible for life membership

Senior Fellows Forum events 

We’re delighted to announce our next Senior Fellows Forum event will be held on Wednesday 30 November 2022 at our offices at 63 Lincoln’s Inn Fields – and we have an exciting programme planned for the day.  

This is the perfect opportunity to engage and network with your peers and the packed programme will feature a series of three short talks including Dr Jeanette Dickson covering the topic ‘My time as President - including the things nobody tells you’, as well as guest speakers Professor Chris McManus and Dr John Glees. In the afternoon, you will be able to choose between a tour of the Royal Opera House or the ’Medicine at The Museum’ tour at The National Gallery. Please see below for the full event programme. 

Any fully or nearly retired members are welcome to attend, plus one guest each. We advise you to book your place as soon as possible as we operate on a first come first served basis. 

Member rates for the day are £48 and guests £58.
