Financial support for doctors and
medical students in Norfolk
Life can be full of nasty surprises...

The Norfolk Benevolent Medical Society

The Norfolk Benevolent Medical Society was established in 1786 and has for more than 200 years provided financial support in times of need for its members, their widows and widowers, their children and dependants. The Society became a registered Friendly Society in 1845 and continues to provide benevolence for members and their families where need arises.

Who We Are

We are a long established Friendly Society of Norfolk doctors, managing a fund derived from membership fees. The Society’s purpose is to offer financial help to members whose circumstances require it.

Doctors Membership

Open to all medical doctors in Norfolk. Your membership allows you to apply for financial support for hardship if you need it, and helps colleagues in hardship.

Medical Students Membership

All UEA Norwich Medical School MBBS students are automatically eligible to support from the society if they are referred to us through the UEA’s Hardship or Access to Learning funds.
