All 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.
In accordance with the FMLM Standing Orders, if a member is erased from the GMC or GDC register their membership will be withdrawn.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. The FMLM’s Membership Committee are responsible for reviewing these cases and will advise Council about the required action.
In addition the FMLM will validate the eligibility of new members against the GMC/GDC register. The 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.
Associates will not have voting rights in FMLM elections or be able to stand for official roles. However they have access to all other member benefits at present.
Membership of the FMLM can only be held by individuals, therefore each person should sign up for membership separately.
Doctors from outside of the UK can sign up for membership in the same way as UK doctors and they receive the same member benefits at present. The membership fees are also the same.
The FMLM was founded by the Academy of Medical Royal College (AoMRC) in 2011, and a representative of each of the UK Medical Royal Colleges and Faculties who are members of the AoMRC sit on the FMLM Founding Council. The FMLM has a strategic partnership with the NHS Leadership Academy.
At 31 May 2016 FMLM had 2,188 members and new members are joining every day.

FMLM Membership subscriptions 2016
At the meeting held on 26 November 2015 to discuss the budget and business plan, the FMLM Board also took the decision to increase member subscription rates to underwrite the planned programme of activities and member benefits for 2016.
Member subscription rates, which have been static for the past two years, will increase by four per cent from 1 March this year. The additional cost for membership when paying by direct debit in 2016 will be no more than £10 for a senior doctor and £1 for a medical student. Direct Debit remains the cheapest and most efficient way to pay for your membership susbcription, if you would like to set up a Direct Debit for your membership renewal please email membership [at] fmlm [dot] ac [dot] uk to request this.
The price increase to membership subscriptions from 1 March 2016 is as follows:
Student - £11.00 by Direct Debit or £12.00 by Credit Card/BACS/Invoice.
Trainee - £72.00* by Direct Debit or £75.00 by Credit Card/BACS/Invoice.
Senior - £214.00* by Direct Debit or £225.00 by Credit Card/BACS/Invoice.
Associate - £166.00 by Direct Debit or £173.00 by Credit Card/BACS/Invoice.
Retired - £111.00 by Direct Debit or £116.00 by Credit Card/BACS/Invoice.
*Please note prices vary for members who have a previous arrangement to pay by monthly direct debit.
If your career level has changed since your last renewal payment then please contact Gareth Davies, Membership Officer - membership [at] fmlm [dot] ac [dot] uk - or phone 0203 075 1377.
If your membership details have not changed you do not need to do anything and your subscription rate will automatically be increased for your next renewal date.
At moment we are new and therefore not a listed organisation on the HMRC website for tax exemption. However as a professional membership body we will be looking to be added to this list in the future.

Yes. Members who choose to pay by annual Direct Debit will get approximately a 5% discount on their membership fee compared to those who continue to pay by credit/debit card. This is because Direct Debit is less costly to administer. Email membership [at] fmlm [dot] ac [dot] uk to set up a dircet debit to pay for your membership.
Members will receive an email with advance notice of collection at least 10 days prior to the first collection and any time the collection amount varies. Please note that the email advance notice will be sent under the name ‘Royal College of Physicians’ because in this interim period whilst FMLM governance arrangements are being settled, finances are being processed by the Royal College of Physicians on behalf of FMLM.

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.
