Membership fee increased to LM20 per year
During the annual general meeting held at the end of February it was decided to increase the annual membership fee from LM15 ot LM20 per year for pre-registration house officers.
This would apply with imediate effect, however doctors who have already paid for 2003 would be exempt.
It is expected that following the introduction of the new health care professions act, that the length of the housemanship will be decreased from two years to one year, so that the negative impact of this measure would indeed be minimal.
However all SHOs and house officers are invited to correct their yearly standing order as from next year.
