Who is eligible for membership?

All UK medically qualified members of FMLM should be in good standing with the GMC and should be registered on the GMC’s List of Registered Medical Practitioners. Dental members should be similarly registered with the GDC. 

Members from overseas should likewise be registered with their own regulatory body.

FMLM continues to welcome members from across the world from a variety of backgrounds and regulatory bodies. As an international membership organisation there is no requirement for registration with the GMC as the membership application process allows for overseas members to provide information on their specific regulatory body.

In accordance with the FMLM Standing Orders, if a member is erased from the GMC or GDC register, their FMLM membership will be withdrawn. If a member is suspended or has any other sanction on their GMC or GDC registration or has been barred from holding a management or leadership position they must declare this to FMLM. FMLM’s Membership Committee is responsible for reviewing these cases and will advise Council about the required action.

In addition FMLM will validate the eligibility of new members against the GMC/GDC register. FMLM also cross check current members against lists provided by the GMC and GDC detailing sanctions brought against any UK registered doctors or dentists.

Should any member or prospective member have any queries relating to their eligibility for FMLM membership please contact the Membership and Engagement Officer at membership [at] fmlm [dot] ac [dot] uk.

You can cancel your membership at any time by contacting the Membership Officer. The Membership Officer will always send a confirmation email to any members whose membership has been cancelled. Please note that if you cancel your membership, you will lose access to FMLM member benefits.

Members on direct debit who wish to cancel should do so at least ten working days before the direct debit is due, either through FMLM or their bank.   

If you cancel and request a refund for the membership subscription, this will only be considered if the request is made within 30 days of payment.  Each transaction costs FMLM in PayPal or Direct Debit fees plus the administrative time involved. We must ensure these costs are adequately covered, therefore, any refund made within the 30 day time period will have 10% of the membership subscription charge plus the equivalent of 2 months membership subscription deducted from the total.
