Each year there is a round of proposals in which current fellows of the Faculty propose candidates for Honorary Fellowship.
On the recommendation of the Board, the Faculty in General Meeting may bestow Honorary Fellowship on persons of eminence who have rendered exceptional services to the science, literature or practice of public health. Not more than six Honorary Fellowships shall be bestowed in any one year. Individuals must be proposed by at least two Fellows.
Candidates for Honorary Fellowship may be members or non-members of the Faculty.
This category of membership is appropriate only for those outstanding individuals who are extremely eminent in their field.
From the date of admission Honorary Fellows are entitled to use the designation HonFFPH.
The proposal process
There is a timetable for proposals each year. More information can be found in the Professional Affairs section of the website.
There is no annual subscription for Honorary Fellows
