How membership works
Memberships are a great way to offer a better patient experience to your loyal patients, whilst driving additional income for the practice. Practices create a package of membership perks, such as premium appointment slots or reduced prices, and list them on their website. This package can then be bought by patients for a price stipulated by the practice. Members will be denoted with a badge on Hero so that administrators know who they are when they walk into the practice.
What are the benefits of membership?
Membership schemes drive income
Members pay either a monthly or annual recurring fee. Collect fees automatically via Direct Debit with our GoCardless integration.
Offer a better practice experience to members
Create a list of perks to entice your members. Members can book at different prices and are given a badge in the app so admins know to grant them their perks.
Memberships streamline patient booking
Create appointments for members only. Create a great patient experience for your regulars by sending out promotional or seasonal appointment recommendations.
Case study: Mayfield Clinic
In August 2019, Mayfield Clinic set up a practice membership to offer a tiered service to its regular patients. The membership included reduced members-only consultation fees, free nurse appointments, all-hours access to a GP, access to their admin team, an annual health check, and a free flu jab.
"Mayfield membership has allowed us to focus on the patients that matter. Only our members have direct access to our admin team, meaning they receive a premium service." Dr Amanda Northridge
