Become a BSH Member

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.

With over 50 years’ experience we aim to utilise past, present and future knowledge to shape professional development and patient care in haematology.

Why join the BSH?

  • Exclusive, monthly membership updates
  • Access to exclusive members-only research and travel grants
  • Discounted registration for our annual conference and other BSH events
  • Access to the British Journal of Haematology (print and online)
  • Apply to join one of the BSH Guideline Sounding Boards, helping direct future patients and carers towards their best options

To become a member, simply fill in our online application form. You will need to be supported by an existing member of the BSH, unless you are applying for Developing World membership. In this case, a CV is required instead of a proposer.   

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

The next membership application deadline is 15 April 2018.  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.

Trainee £70 per year

Still studying? Keep up with all the latest developments in haematology and use our online tools to record your progress. Trainees receive all the same benefits as full members but at half the price.

Associate £70 per year

Our associate members receive the benefits listed above, but do not have voting rights or access to the print or online versions of the British Journal of Haematology.

Developing World  £70 per year

Developing World membership is an option not a restriction, so should you wish to purchase full membership you may.
