Become a Member

The Patients Association is an independent organisation and receives no core Government funding.

In order to continue ‘Listening to Patients, Speaking up for Change’ we need your support. We offer the opportunity to join us as a Full Member.

Full Membership

As a full member you will be making a vital contribution towards funding the work of the Association.

  • Members are invited regularly to contribute their views and experiences through our surveys.
  • A copy of our annual Patient Voice magazine which contains latest news and opinions on the NHS as well as reviews of how the Patients Association has been speaking up for change.
  • Free copies of our research publications available on request

To become a full member you need to give over £20 a year to the Patients Association. You can do this by giving £2 a month (or as much as you feel able to above that) by Direct Debit or by giving a one off donation which entitles you to one year’s membership. You can do both here.

Alternatively, download our membership form, fill in your information and send the completed form to:

Patients Association,
PO Box 935,
Harrow, Middlesex,

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer you can help us to take advantage of the Government’s Gift Aid scheme, enabling The Patients Association to claim back 25p for every £1 you donate. If everyone who was able to Gift Aid their donations did so, we would have enough extra funds to support one more research project every year. Please indicate when you donate to, or join the organsiation, if you want to Gift aid your contribution.
