Paying for your membership by Direct Debit

If you fail to pay all or any part of your subscription for any period of membership we may suspend or terminate your membership and/or allocate any payments received by us in the manner set out in section 7(a) of the MPS Articles of Association. However, we do not consider failed payments as creating a debt to us since MPS membership is discretionary and, accordingly, we will not take legal action against you for your failure to pay.

    I am not sure of the amount I expect to earn from private practice this year. Can I let you know at the end of the year?

    Yes. Simply tell us how much you think you will earn. If, at the end of the year, you discover that you have earned more or less than you expected, please let us know. We will then adjust your subscription accordingly and a payment supplement or refund may be required.
  • Q
    Do you charge interest if I pay by direct debit?
    +
    17 September 2014
    No. You can pay either annually or in ten equal instalments, the amount will not differ.
  • Q
    Does my membership renew automatically?
    +
    17 September 2014

    Yes, if you pay by direct debit.

    That is one of the advantages of paying by direct debit - you are not at risk of any unintended gaps in your membership. However, you must contact us if your professional or personal circumstances or your contact details change.

    If you pay by cheque or credit card, you will automatically receive renewal information. We will send you your membership certificate once we receive your payment.

    To set up a direct debit, please contact one of our membership advisers.

  • Q
    Do I get a reduced subscription rate if I participate in MPS education?
    +
    22 September 2014

    No, not at present. MPS sets its subscription rates to reflect the risks of various groups of doctors who share similar characteristics – for example specialty groupings. Therefore, the rate you pay is set to reflect the level of potential risk. 

    At the present time the main benefits to the individual practitioner of engaging with our educational programs are:

    • Enhanced risk management skills
    • Improved patient outcomes
    • Reduced likelihood of involvement with claims or complaints and the associated stress, worry and inconvenience they bring.
