How to pay: methods of payment

Direct Debit (UK bank accounts only)

Spread the cost of your membership fee over the year. Direct Debit is the safest, most cost-effective and easiest way to make recurring payments.

We offer three options for making a payment by Direct Debit:

  • Annually: 1 instalment collected on or immediately after 1 April each year if set up before 16 March. 7 days from setup date or on 1 day of the following month if set up at a later date. 
  • Quarterly: 4 instalments if set up before 16 March, to be collected on 1 April, 1 July, 1 October, 1 January or immediately after. Dates and number of instalments vary if set up at a later date.
  • Monthly: 12 instalments if set up before 16 March, to be collected from 1 April to 1 March or immediately after. Fewer instalments if set up at a later date.

How to set up a Direct Debit


During Renewal (starting around mid-February): Log into MyRCGP and click on 'Renew your membership'

New Direct Debit - needs to be set up between mid-February and the end of July
Existing Direct Debit - all changes need to be updated between mid-February and 16 March


Call us on +44 (0)20 3188 7766 to set up a Direct Debit if you are the sole bank account holder. 


Download the Direct Debit mandate and return it via email. 

If you're setting up the Direct Debit arrangement after 1 April, we will tell you your collection dates, as they won't be in line with the standard schedule.

We will write to you at least two weeks before to the first collection in April, in any subscription year.

Debit / credit card

We only accept MasterCard, Visa, Visa Debit and Maestro. We do not accept American Express. 

You can pay online during renewal (from mid-February) by logging in to your RCGP account and clicking on 'Renew your membership'

If you have already renewed you membership but need to change your payment method throughout the subscription year, please call the Member Services Team on +44 (0)20 3188 7766.

Cheque or bank draft

If payment cannot be completed online via Direct Debit or card, we accept sterling cheques or bank drafts payable in the United Kingdom.
They should be made payable to The Royal College of General Practitioners and posted to:

Member Services - 4th Floor
Royal College of General Practitioners
30 Euston Square 

Please ensure that you write your RCGP Member number on the reverse side of the cheque. Due to the current situation, it may take up to 10 weeks to cash your cheque.


After payment of your subscription/registration fees, you can access receipts by logging in to your MyRCGP account (top right of this page).

Once you have logged in, please click on 'Manage your membership', then 'Order History' where you will find your receipts.
