Who can become an AfPP Member?

Membership is open to everyone who works in or around the operating theatre and perioperative environment across both the NHS and independent sector.

This includes:

  • Students, Lecturers and Educators
  • Theatre/Pre-assessment/Anaesthetic/Recovery Nurses
  • Operating Department Practitioners (ODPs)
  • Health Care Assistants (HCAs)
  • Health Care Support Workers (HSWs)
  • Sterile Services Staff
  • Theatre/Day Surgery Managers

I joined AfPP for the professional support it provides. At the time I was quite new to the perioperative environment. Since joining I’ve found the regional study days and the annual conference beneficial in terms of professional development and keeping my knowledge up to date. I find AfPP incredibly good value for money in terms of the support, professional development and networking opportunities they provide.
