An honorary membership category, ratified at AGM by members, was introduced in June 2011, to enable APTUK to acknowledge exceptional service, given either to the association or to The Pharmacy Technician profession generally, by a person who is not eligible to be a member of APTUK.
The membership category of “Fellow” is open to all members of the Association, who demonstrate loyalty to APTUK and the pharmacy profession and are well respected. It is in recognition of exceptional professional performance or outstanding service contribution to pharmacy or the Association either locally or at national level.
