BASL is a multi-disciplinary society with over 1,000 members composed of interested individuals from clinical medicine, clinical and basic research and allied professions.
BASL Membership covers membership to BASL and all of its sub groups and special interest groups including BLNA, BVHG, BLTG, BHPG and HCC-UK. Membership is not available to one specific group but the subscription rate you pay is determined by your job status. This membership structure was put in place at the start of the membership year 31 January 2015.
This allows all members free access to BASL and affiliate group meetings except for specific meetings where subsidised rates apply. Any chargeable meetings will have rates advertised.
