Subscriptions for membership of the Faculty of Public Health (FPH) are due and payable on 1 January each year. The FPH Board agrees any changes to membership rates in November each year and the Treasurer notifies all members in December of their subscription for the following January.

Members can then arrange payment in January or opt to make payments by direct debit.

FPH members should be aware that FPH subscriptions are tax deductible in accordance with section 344 of the Income Tax Act 2003. (FPH is on List 3 and is listed as 'Public Health of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom, Faculty of.')

A list of the 2018 membership subscription rates are available in the documents area of this page.

There are reduced rate subscription options available in certain instances.
