The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness


How to join or find out more

To join MSNAP, please visit and click 'join us'. You will be asked to provide contact details for your service, invoicing information including a Purchase Order number, and details of 2 members of staff who are interested in becoming peer reviewers. More information about peer reviewing can be found here.

If you do not have all of this information to hand, you can save your registration and come back to it at a later date.


For more information, please contact the project team; full details are on our Contact Us page.


Who can join? 

If you work in a UK memory service or memory clinic involved in the assessment and diagnosis of dementia, then you are eligible to join the programme. 


This includes both NHS and private services.


Please note: As part of the assessment process, we will review your staffing and the clinic environment (if the service is based at a clinic), therefore if you work in a broad service that includes multiple teams or satellite clinics, we would assess and accredit each clinic or team separately. 


It is not possible to register a Trust-wide service under one subscription if this service consists of multiple clinics/teams.


The subscription fee applies per clinic or team.


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 three year membership:


  • 1 year = £1900 + VAT
  • 3 years = £5130 + 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.


Affiliate membership

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!

For more information, please visit our Affiliate Membership page.
