Membership fees 2018

The Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) Assembly has agreed a 2.6% inflation linked increase in membership fees for 2018. This year, the Society used the Consumer Price Index (2.6% in June) to calculate the rise, rather than the higher Retail Price Index (3.5% in June) used previously. 

The new membership subscriptions that will take effect on 1 January 2018 are detailed in schedule 1 below. Any member who wishes to comment to the Assembly on the fee changes is asked to do so by Friday 27 October 2017. Comments should be sent to
