Application Process

Potential members need to be nominated – it is preferable that they know a member of the group, however, they can register interest directly & be interviewed prior to potential nomination.

Applicants will need to provide their nominator with:

  1. A Letter of Introduction, detailing their current work (private and/or public) and how membership of MAG would be beneficial for both them and the group

  1. Their CV, including three clinical references (with contact details), none of whom should be MAG members.

Applications are then approved by the New Member Committee with the consent of other MAG members.

Our Fee Structure

Members are charged a monthly base fee & then a scaled percentage of their billings. Fees are periodically reviewed by the Executive Committee. New ‘provisional’ members are offered a 6-month introductory reduced membership rate.
