How much does it cost?
The programme runs entirely on
subscription fees from our members. The annual fee for this
programme has been reduced and is now £1900 +
VAT per year.
A 10 per cent discount is available for services
that purchase a four year membership:
- 1 year = £1900 + VAT
- 2 years = £3800 + VAT
- 4 years = £6840 + VAT (10% discount)
- Affiliate membership =
£500+VAT for 2 years (see below for details)
The College Centre for Quality Improvement is cost-neutral, so
the majority of your subscription fee goes towards the cost of your
peer review visit and other benefits such as free training and
forum events; the rest is used in administration.
We have launched a new initiative - affiliate MSNAP
membership - for memory services who are not ready to
apply for MSNAP accreditation at this point, but who have plans to
in the near future.
The subscription fee for this membership level is only £500
+ VAT per service for a two-year period.
And if affiliate members register for the full programme within
this two-year period, the £500 will be deducted from the first
year's subscription fee!
