The Manchester Medical Society is a charity registered in England and Wales (number 22800), is an independent, self governing, learned society and receives no state funding.
You may not be aware but we rely on your support to exist. As an unincorporated association and registered charity we fund our development initiatives and sector advocacy through membership fees, donations and chargeable events to fund its provision of postgraduate medical education for doctors and other healthcare professionals.
All of Manchester Medical Society’s activities require some level of resource. We do not receive any funding from government or other agencies. This means that all our activities, which enhance and develop the role of medical and dental professionals, are primarily funded by our members and by surpluses generated from investment.
