A reduction in the annual subscriptions is available to members who have a low professional income as assessed for taxation purposes (this is before the payment of any income tax, National Insurance or pension contributions.) Members requiring such a reduction must apply annually to the Treasurer by 31 January each year. Please email treasurer@fph.org.uk, providing proof of earnings.

The reduction is offered:

(a) to a member who is usually working but on a low income. The subscription will be 80% of the subscription normally payable or the Faculty minimum subscription whichever is the higher.

(b) to a member who is usually not working fulltime but is not able to claim a retired rate of subscription. There will be a reduction of 33% of the subscription normally payable or the Faculty minimum whichever is the higher

Full details are given with the annual subscription letter but further details can be available from subscriptions@fph.org.uk on 020 3696 1465.

Reduced subscriptions at the discretion of the Treasurer

Reduced subscriptions may be approved at the Treasurers discretion in exceptional circumstances. Please contact the Membership Department to discuss any such instances.

 

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.
