Membership Committee

Once your application is received by the SCTS office, it will be formally submitted to the Membership Committee.  Once approved, your membership will be confirmed pending final ratification at the next Annual Business Meeting.  The membership committee comprises the President, Honorary Secretary and chairs of each of the surgical sub-committees (cardiac, thoracic, congenital).  Applications for Allied Health Professionals will also be sent to the Nursing & AHP representative.  If you have any questions regarding membership please contact Isabelle Ferner at


If you are retiring from your NHS consultant post, you can still retain your membership of the Society at no charge by changing your status to Senior.  This enables you to keep abreast of Society activities but without having to pay an annual subscription.  If you are nearing retirement, please email IsabelleFerner at to change your membership status.
