Technicians UK (APTUK)
The Professional Leadership Body for Pharmacy Technicians
APTUK encourages in our membership, and in all pharmacy technicians, the attitudes, behaviours and qualities that are associated with outstanding healthcare professionals.
By this we mean, demonstrating and being trustworthy, reliable and dependable. Acting with integrity, honesty, responsibility and being accountable. Being positive and open to learning from others to maintain and gain knowledge and competence, and ultimately showing respect for others, demonstrating self-regulation in behaviour and attitude for the good of others.
