The Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK (APTUK) stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement protesting the appalling murders of George Floyd and others, institutional racism and wider injustices faced by BAME communities in the UK and overseas. APTUK is fully committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and we believe all forms of racism and discrimination are unacceptable and should not be tolerated.
We are challenging ourselves and the entire Association to reflect on whether we as individuals and as an organisation are doing enough to eradicate racism. We are asking all our members to join us and help make the APTUK an inclusive organisation. Only by valuing each other, respecting difference and recognising how this makes us stronger will we achieve our purpose of developing and raising the profile of the Pharmacy Technician profession.
What are we doing?
