The British Association of Perinatal Medicine (BAPM) is a professional association and registered charity.

We improve perinatal care for pregnant women, newborn babies and their families. We achieve this by providing advice and information for Government, Medical Royal Colleges and other organisations; by promoting research and academic excellence; by providing education, training and information services for health professionals and by the auditing and monitoring of outcomes.

Our vision is for every baby and their family in the British Isles to receive the highest standard of perinatal care.

Our mission is to improve standards of perinatal care by supporting all those involved in perinatal care to optimise their skills and knowledge, promote high quality, safe and innovative practice, encourage research, and speak out for the needs of babies and their families.

Family Centred Care

We believe that involving families as partners in decision making and care provision provides the best outcomes for babies.

Working collaboratively

We believe that a collaborative approach where all health professionals work together provides the safest and most effective service for babies and families.

Trust and Transparency

We believe in maintaining the highest standards of integrity and quality in delivering our work on behalf of our members and their patients and families.

Gift Aid Declaration
By completing a Gift Aid Declaration members can enable BAPM to reclaim tax on their subscriptions. Existing members who have not completed a Declaration can download the form here.

Giving Through Self Assessment
The Inland Revenue have introduced a new method for individuals to give to charity. You can choose that any tax repayments due to you following self-assessment are paid to a charity of your choice. The charity must have an Inland Revenue code number, which will be listed on the Inland Revenue website. If you wish to nominate BAPM for any tax repayments due to you on your next self-assessment, BAPM's code number is VAL44BG. This new scheme does not replace Gift Aid but is additional to it.

Members should inform the BAPM office of any changes to their contact information.
