Honorary Membership and Fellow Membership Award

Published: 5th June 2017


The nomination period closes FRIDAY! - Please vote now!


Honorary Membership:

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 honorary member is a distinctive membership bestowed in recognition of the efforts of the nominee who has made a profound difference by either:

•    championing and upholding the professional role of pharmacy technicians

•    publically supporting the continuing development of pharmacy technicians

•    advancing the roles, knowledge, skills and behaviours of pharmacy technicians

•    working consistently hard on behalf of pharmacy technicians.

The awardee will be entitled to lifetime membership of APTUK and eligible to attend the AGM, however they will not be entitled to any voting rights. Only one “honorary membership” will be awarded each year.


Fellow membership:


Fellow membership is the highest level of APTUK membership and recognises advanced expertise and sustained professionalism. Being awarded this is one of the highest honours that can be bestowed upon our members.

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.


Nomination period for 2017 is open from Tuesday 16th May up to Friday 9th June 2017.


Nominations are now being considered for both of these awards and may be received from any full member or fellow of APTUK.

If you know somebody who you feel is worthy of such an award then please complete the nomination form as applicable (The forms can be found on the members area of the website) and return to:  or post to Vice President, APTUK, One Victoria Square, Birmingham, B1 1BD.
