We understand that there may be unexpected changes in your training structure, which is why we can be flexible with your membership and make allowances to help you. For instance, the types of placements you carry out and the duration they last may change, which will affect the subscription rate you pay, so we structure our GP trainee membership into the following:
12 component parts
- Part-time and full-time training
- General practice placements
- Hospital placements
So, should your situation change during the year, we can adjust your record and subscription rates to reflect this - you may even receive a refund if the changes lower your annual subscription rates.
PAYMENT AND REIMBURSEMENT
Once you are working in a general practice setting, your subscription rate will seem significantly greater than your foundation years. As this can be a large amount to pay in one go, you can spread these costs throughout the year by breaking it down to ten monthly instalments, at no extra costs.
You can also apply to your employer or local education and training board for the reimbursement of subscriptions paid for any given 12 month period. This means that you, personally, will not have to pay more than the hospital rate for your full year's subscription with Medical Protection whilst training to become a GP.
We can provide you with the evidence you need in order to seek your reimbursement – if you haven’t already received a confirmation letter from us, please contact our Membership Team
KEEP US INFORMED
To ensure you’re protected for your personal circumstances, it’s essential you keep us updated and inform us of any changes.
So, if you need to let us know about any changes, or are unsure whether you are paying the correct subscription, contact our Membership Team on 0800 561 9000.
