New Membership Level

Published 02/10/2020

Following on from a suggestion in our AGM this year, we are pleased to announce a new membership level for our nursing, midwifery and allied health professional colleagues. For £25 a year, they will have access to all resources online as full membership without the option of the physical quarterly journal.

We hope this will encourage more allied health professionals to further diversify our society and join us in working towards improving the care we provide and pregnancy outcomes for women with medical disorders. For more information, please head over to our “join us” page.

For any allied health professionals who are already current members please get in touch with our website admin and obstetric trainee rep, Tara Lee (contact details on our “contact us” page) if you would like to switch over.
