Why Join ARH?

 

If you are a qualified homeopath, deciding which – if any – professional organisation to register with can be difficult. To help you make this important decision we have put together the following list of Questions and Answers, which we hope will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed choice about joining the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths (ARH).

If you are a student of homeopathy, or an interested member of the public, we hope that these questions and answers will give you an insight into how ARH works and what it represents.

Please note that the term ‘Members’ in these questions and answers is used to refer to Registered Members. Visit our Student Membership or Friends of ARH pages for more information on these two membership categories.

1. Why should I join a professional organisation?

By joining a professional organisation, you:

  • receive support from your organisation and its Members, so you are less isolated in your practice
  • keep up-to-date with developments in your field
  • demonstrate to the public that you practise homeopathy responsibly and professionally
  • have the opportunity to influence the future of homeopathy.

2. Why should I choose ARH?

Because:

  • We do not simply tell our Members what we think is good for them – we ask for their input. The views of our Members help to inform our actions.
  • We do not tell our Members which type of homeopathy they should practise. We recognise that there are a number of different prescribing methodologies and we believe that each should be judged on its own merits.
  • We are committed to supporting and encouraging our Members to grow and develop as practitioners.
  • We invite our Members to participate in shaping the future of our profession. We feel that this is the most constructive way to ensure the long-term prospects of homeopathy.
  • We represent our Members’ best interests as homeopaths, both nationally and within the European Community.
  • We support ethical research, and publications which push back the boundaries of our knowledge and understanding of homeopathy.
  • We offer excellent value for money.

3. What benefits do I get from joining ARH?

As a Member of the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths, you will:

  • be recognised as a Registered Homeopath
  • be entitled to use the letters ‘MARH’ after your name
  • have your practice details shown on the ARH online Register, and the online Register of ‘Find a Homeopath’.
  • be eligible to take out ARH professional indemnity insurance
  • be able to keep up-to-date with news and developments in the field of homeopathy, via our publications and on our website
  • receive our quarterly journal, Homeopathy in Practice
  • be eligible for reduced prices for ARH conferences and seminars
  • have the support and backing of a dedicated professional organisation
  • have free access to our e-group discussion forums

4. How do I join ARH?

ARH is a UK-based registering organisation. Any qualified homeopath, whether newly graduated from a college of homeopathy, or already established in practice in the UK or abroad, is welcome to apply to register with the ARH. Details about how to register with us can be found on this webpage, or on the registration forms, or by phoning the office on 01825 714506.

5. What does the annual ARH membership fee cover?

Members’ subscriptions are used to pay for:

  • administration
  • publications
  • publicity
  • membership of the European Council for Classical Homeopathy (ECCH)
  • expenses of Directors and members of working groups
  • ethical research and development, and dissemination of findings.

6. Can I pay my subscription in installments?

Yes. Membership fees can be paid in installments by a monthly Direct Debit instruction. Please note that this facility does incur an administration fee

7. Is professional indemnity insurance compulsory?

Yes. All ARH Members practising in the UK must hold professional indemnity insurance. They can either take up the insurance offered as part of the ARH subscription package, or they can arrange their own insurance. Members who organise their own insurance pay just the ARH subscription fee, and must show us evidence that their own policy is current.

8. Registered Membership – Your commitment to the ARH

The ARH is committed to providing all our members with a range of useful services, combined with effective advice and support, tailored to the particular needs of each individual.  In order for us to plan ahead and manage our resources efficiently, we require that our members maintain their membership for the duration of a complete membership year (01 October – 30 September the following year).

To help with their financial planning, we offer our registered members staged payment options, such as Direct Debits, in the spirit of trust. If a member breaks that trust by failing to honour the financial undertaking they agreed with the ARH during renewals, this has the potential to impact negatively upon all ARH members.

Cancellation of membership part way through a membership year will only be considered under extreme circumstances. Such requests must be made in writing giving at least 60 days’ notice, and must state the reasons for requesting a cancellation. Please note, no refund will be applied to membership cancellations.

9. How does ARH see the future of homeopathy in the UK?

We want our profession to take its rightful role in furthering the health of everyone who chooses to use homeopathy.

We think the future of homeopathy is best secured by involving our Members in securing independent self-regulation, so that we retain the autonomy of our profession.

We want to ensure a regulatory process in place which reflects the diversity of homeopathic practice, so that we can continue to offer our patients  safe and effective healthcare.

Join Team ARH, and help us to promote homeopathy – healthy medicine.
