For over 100 years, the British Healthcare Trades Association (BHTA) has been advocating the needs of its members and championing high standards in the healthcare, assistive technologies and medical devices markets.

Businesses that join the BHTA all share the same desire – for users of their products and services to have the best experience and outcomes possible. If your business shares this passion, then find out more about how to join our association.

Four simple steps to joining the BHTA

Step 1: Get in touch

To start your journey with the BHTA, simply contact our friendly membership team.

A representative from the team will send through more information and contact you to answer any queries and find out more about your business.

After speaking to the Membership team, we will send you our membership application form to complete, along with BHTA documentation.

It is free to apply to become a member of the BHTA

Step 2: Complete the application

Before completing the application form, you will need to confirm that you have read and signed up to our Terms & Conditions, Articles of Association, Code of Practice, and pricing structure.

The application form will require you to provide us with permission to carry out pre-admission checks to ensure your business meets our high standards (these can include TrustOnline, ASA and FCA checks, if applicable)

When submitting your application form, you will also need to send relevant documentation to enable us to do checks against our Code of Practice (including company literature, terms & conditions policies, complaints procedure, and sales training manuals, if applicable).

Step 3: Review of application

Within two working days of receiving your application, we’ll acknowledge receipt and start our review process, including performing eligibility checks and review of submitted documentation.

Within 14 days of acknowledging receipt, we’ll contact you to confirm if your application has been successful.

If unsuccessful, we’ll inform you via email of the reasons why, and any actions that you must complete to be eligible for membership, if applicable.

Step 4: Membership Confirmation

If your application has been successful, our dedicated Membership team will set up your membership payment – starting from £49.50 (excl. VAT) per month.

Your dedicated Membership Engagement Manager will contact you to welcome you to the association and help you get started.

We’ll create your business listing in our popular BHTA Member Directory and provide you access to our raft of BHTA plus benefits, as well as upcoming Section meetings, webinars and events.
