Subscription Rates

Membership at the British Orthopaedic Association comes in many different categories to suit all stages of your career. At our 2012 Annual General Meeting it was decided to add a Congress Supplement to the subscription, that will allow our members to register for the Annual Congress for free* during the 'early bird' registration period.

Please notify us by emailing

Direct Debit is the preferred option, overseas members may pay by bank transfer, Cheque, Visa or MasterCard.

Taxable Discounts

As a professional body registered by HM Revenue & Customs, if you pay your membership subscription from your earnings and live in the UK, you can currently claim tax relief, which reduces the real costs of your membership; please speak to your financial advisor to clarify.
