BIOS offers a range of membership options to suit all prospective members.

If you are qualified to be a member of BIOS, then we want you to be a member: it’s as simple as that.

You can still join for 2020, with liability insurance and trade union cover (UK-Only) from the date you sign up. If you have any questions please contact our office at bios@orthoptics.org.uk.

* Please note, the BIOS membership year runs from 1 January – 31 December and new members are required to pay for the full calendar year. 

Student membership is free of charge to all undergraduate orthoptic students! Once you graduate, we even throw in Full membership at no charge until the end of the calendar year. 

Orthoptists in their first full year of practice are eligible for a substantial discount on the price: if you think this may apply to you, please contact the office for more information .
