These fees cover membership of both the national and relevant state organisation, and subscription to DRS publications. Note that publication of the journal New Doctor is currently in recess.

Membership fees help us to do the lobbying work that we do, and to maintain our website and our social media work. Members are encouraged to become involved with their local state DRS group.

The Doctors Reform Society does not want financial hardship to discourage potential members from joining, and has a flexible fee structure.

Only medical practitioners and medical students are eligible to be full members of the DRS. Other supporters are encouraged to become “Friends of the DRS” via a donation or by liking us on Facebook
