If you are a qualified healthcare professional, the FFLM needs to verify that you are registered with a professional regulatory body and that you are in good standing. Please provide the web address of your regulatory body to enable the FFLM to verify your status on-line. If you know it is not possible to verify your status on-line with your particular regulatory body, then please provide the full name and postal address of the body.

The Board may exercise its discretion on a case by case basis and allow you, if you do allied work, or if you are in training, to join as an Affiliate member even if you are not registered with a regulatory body.

Please note: If you are a healthcare professional and the FFLM cannot verify that you are in good standing with a professional regulatory body, then your application for membership will not be successful.
