Membership gives you and your practice an opportunity to express yourself and the great services you are providing patients through the website. More frequently commissioners, GP’s and patients are using the world wide web to seek information on services provided by you.

IMPT events give members who are geographically spread throughout the world opportunities to get together, learn and improve your practice.

As a member you can submit articles for the Journal, Newsletter and website to highlight the great work you are carrying out. This is useful for recognition for your service, advertise your work and also peer review of your work.
