RPS announces updated membership fees for 2021

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society today announced its new fees for all members in 2021.

The big news is a 9% saving for members joining via annual Direct Debit.

Robbie Turner, RPS Director of Member Experience, explained the changes, saying that “Pharmacists who sign up using their credit card will pay £227 for their membership in 2021. Whereas annual Direct Debit, as well as being more convenient, also works out cheaper, at just £208 for the same benefits and the same duration.”

That’s a saving of £19 over the year, available to all employed/self-employed Members, Pharmaceutical Scientists, Fellows and Associates, “Which,” said Robbie “Is particularly important to younger members of the profession – and they stand to benefit the most from membership of RPS, with access to services created to help them develop their skills in order to build a career.”

And there’s an even better deal for Pre-Registration trainees and recently qualified members:

Associate Pre-Reg members pay just £78 for their membership by annual Direct Debit (£84 if paying by credit card).

Members in their first year after qualification can join for just £104 by annual Direct Debit (£113 by credit card).

While Members in their second year after qualification can join for £156 by annual Direct Debit (£170 by credit card).

As always, student membership is completely free for the year, and there are significant discounts for members who are retired, on maternity leave, on long-term sick leave, or based outside Great Britain.
