BAPEN Membership

To join BAPEN online, please choose a membership below. Alternatively, you can download and print the form further below and send it to us by post.

Most BAPEN members are usually members of one of the BAPEN Core Groups. Apart from BAPEN Medical, joining a Core Group needs to be done separately from joining BAPEN. BAPEN Medical is a Core Group but does not hold separate finances from BAPEN. All doctors and trainee doctors who join BAPEN also become members of BAPEN Medical.

In addition, we encourage other professionals who are not members of any of these organisations to join BAPEN.

As is evident from the array of publications, resources and lobbying, BAPEN is collectively a powerful resource effecting change, however we actively encourage new members to bring in new ideas and viewpoints.

Becoming a member is very easy and our membership rates are extremely competitive with annual membership costing from as little as £10.00.

The benefits of becoming a member are outlined in our Membership Brochure. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the BAPEN office if you have any queries.
