The WMAHSN membership scheme was launched on 1 June 2015. All NHS organisations, academic and educational institutions, other public bodies, life sciences industry and private sector companies within the West Midlands were automatically enrolled as WMAHSN standard members. The participation of private sector organisations based outside the West Midlands is also welcomed.

The WMAHSN standard membership scheme will remain no cost for all WMAHSN stakeholders, as it is subsidised by NHS England. WMAHSN intends to continue to deliver this no cost standard membership scheme for all of its stakeholders until the end of its NHS England licence.

WMAHSN also offers a paid-for enhanced membership scheme, with additional benefits, services and premium access, for organisations should they choose to do so. The WMAHSN is also developing a corporate partnership scheme for larger industry members.

The membership scheme is designed to deliver four West Midlands-specific priorities:

In order to deliver on these priorities, there are seven enabling themes, all of which offer benefits, networks and opportunities to all WMAHSN members, with premium services and access for enhanced members:
