BASL Membership

BASL is a multi-disciplinary society with around 850 members composed of interested individuals from clinical medicine, clinical and basic research and allied professions. As a member, your annual subscription is used to organise the [Annual Meeting] held each September.

BASL Membership covers membership to BASL and all of its special interest groups, BASLNF, BVHG and BLTG. Membership is not available to one specific group but the subscription rate you pay is determined by your job status. This is a change to the membership structure and was put in place at the start of the membership year 31 January 2015.

This allows all members free access to BASL and affiliate group meetings except for specific meetings where subsidised rates apply. Any chargeable meetings will have rates advertised.
