Insurance

All ARH members are entitled to apply for insurance via the ARH Block Scheme that is offered and arranged by Balens Limited. Once you have completed your membership application/renewal, you can apply for your insurance cover directly with Balens, (details below). Full information about the insurance cover can be obtained from Balens. They will also be very happy to answer any questions you may have regarding insurance. The ARH Block Scheme rates are competitive, and we believe they offer an excellent-value package. You can also add other therapies to your cover, as long as you are qualified those disciplines. Most additional therapies do not incur an additional premium. Again full information and terms and conditions are available directly from Balens Ltd.

Insurance costs for our current full membership year (01 October until 30 September) are:

  • Practitioners = £44 – (inclusive of Insurance Premium Tax)
  • Students = £19.16 – (inclusive of Insurance Premium Tax)

Phone Balens directly on 01684 580 771 for more details, email info@balens.co.uk or visit Balens website at www.balens.co.uk

Join ARH

We have various types of membership available. Here you can read through the options to decide which membership category is best suited for your particular needs.

Registered membership is open to:

  • newly qualified graduates of UK colleges of homeopathy
  • practising homeopaths in the UK.

The registered membership fee for new applicants during the year 2023-2024, costs £340, plus a one off registration fee of £75 (unless waived via a special offer). The membership fee reduces quarterly, and the amount payable is clearly shown at the checkout. This fee can be paid via instalments – please contact us on 01825 714 506 for more details.

Insurance is an additional £44 (UK). If you are insured outside of the ARH block scheme, we will ask you to provide us with a copy of your current insurance certificate.

These are the registration options:

Graduate route

For applicants who have graduated in the last three years from a college recognised by the ARH, (requires portfolio and two references). As indicated above, there is a one-off registration fee of £75

Practitioner route

For applicants who have graduated from a college recognised by the ARH more than three years ago, or are already in practice and registered with a professional body (requires reference). There is a one-off registration fee of £75

The ARH registration process has been designed to be accessible and user-friendly, whilst maintaining the high standards expected of practitioners by both the public and healthcare professionals. Our registration criteria include recommendations made in the UK National Occupational Standards for Homeopathy.

As a Registered 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 listed in the ARH online Register
  • have your practice details listed in the Find a Homeopath online Register
  • be eligible to take out ARH professional indemnity insurance
  • receive our quality journal, Homeopathy in Practice
  • be eligible for reduced prices for ARH conferences and seminars
  • have the support and backing of a dedicated professional organisation.

Student membership

Student membership is open to anyone studying homeopathy in the UK. As a Student Member of the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths you will receive:

  • our quality journal, Homeopathy in Practice
  • access to a competitively priced, comprehensive insurance package, just £19.16 for the year!
  • free access to our e-group discussion forum – an invaluable information source
  • help, support and advice, when required
  • reduced prices for attendance at ARH conferences and seminars

Student Membership normally costs just £45 per year!

Final-year students who wish to register as Full Members of ARH as soon as they have graduated can send in their registration application form before graduation, as long as they include a letter from the college confirming that they have satisfied all their graduation criteria. See ‘Full Membership’ for further details, and to download a Registration Pack for Full Membership (Graduate route).

Student Members are eligible to take out ARH professional indemnity insurance, at an annual cost of just £19.16, which we believe represents exceptional value! Students who take out this insurance must inform patients that they are students practising under supervision, and can only charge to cover remedies and supervision costs.

Friends membership

If you have recently graduated and need some time to establish your practice, then this is a membership category that can help you get started. Alternatively, if you are a practitioner, but do not require registration, you might like to become a Friend of the Alliance of Registered Homeopaths. Friend’s membership is also useful for individuals who need some time out to devote to looking after babies, or other dependents – it’s a good way to stay in touch without the financial outlay of registered membership.

As a Friend of ARH you will receive:

  • our quality journal, Homeopathy in Practice
  • a comprehensive insurance package giving £6 million cover per claim for just £44. We believe this represents exceptional value
  • free access to our egroup discussion forum

  • reduced prices for attendance at ARH conferences and seminars

Annual subscription is £90 (£100 for Friends outside the UK)

We look forward to welcoming you as a Friend of ARH.

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 the field of homeopathy and integrated healthcare
  • 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 professional indemnity insurance via the ARH block-scheme arrangement with Balens
  • 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 journal, Homeopathy in Practice, which is published three times a year
  • 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, and the online registration forms can be accessed via the ‘membership’ tab above (to the right of centre), which activates the drop-down menu containing all the membership and payment categories.

5. What does the annual ARH membership fee cover?

Members’ subscriptions are used to pay for:

  • administration
  • publications
  • participation in the 4Homeopathy Collaboration
  • participation in the Integrated Healthcare Collaborative (IHC)
  • publicity
  • 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. Please contact the office on 01825 714 506 for further information on this option, and note that this facility might 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 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.
