The BADN office is currently being inundated with new membership applications and queries re GDC registration renewal. If you have applied for membership/renewal, or left a voicemail with a query, please be patient – we will get back to you!! For more information on BADN membership, please click BADN Thinking of Joining Leaflet Apr 2016 to see our membership leaflet, and then here to join up on line (Full Membership with Cover). For more information on indemnity cover, please click BADN Indemnity Fact Sheet.
Please note that if you require proof of cover before 31 July, in order to renew your GDC registration, you will need to pay by credit or debit card when joining on line. This will allow you to download your cover documents straight away. Payment by Direct Debit or cheque delays the application process as both have to be processed by your bank (it takes at least a month to set up a Direct Debit payment) before we can process your application. Your membership card and number will be posted out to you once your application has been processed – this normally takes about a week but, due to the high number of applications right now, could be slightly longer, so please bear with us!
