Join the BSH


If you are training or practising in the field of haematology we invite you to join the UK’s largest professional network for the specialty. We are a multidisciplinary society and we welcome membership applications from nurses, biomedical and clinical scientists, pharmacists and allied health professionals as well as medics.

With over 50 years’ experience we aim to utilise science and experience to shape professional development and patient care in haematology.

Reasons to join the BSH

  • Exclusive, monthly membership updates to help keep you up to date with advances in Haematology
  • Access to exclusive members-only research and travel grants
  • Discounted registration for our annual conference 
  • Access to the British Journal of Haematology (print and online) 24 issues a year - cost to non members £223
  • Apply to join one of the BSH Guideline Sounding Boards to help to develop clinical guidelines
  • Access to educational videos including footage of Pitfalls and key sessions at our ASM
  • Opportunities to expand your knowledge, work on interesting projects and make a difference by volunteering on BSH Committees

If you are a UK tax payer our membership subscriptions are tax deductible so you could claim at least 22% of your subscription back.

To become a member, simply fill in our online application form. You will need to be supported by an existing member of the BSH (if you do not know a BSH member please email for advice), unless you are applying for Developing World membership. In this case, a CV is required instead of a proposer.   

Membership applications are reviewed on the 15th of every month by the BSH Board of Trustees.

We will notify you within four weeks of the deadline of the success of your application.

Please allow sufficient time before the deadline for your sponsor to verify their support. If their support is not received before the deadline, your application may be delayed to a following month.
