The Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK (APTUK) is the professional leadership body for Pharmacy Technicians across all four nations of the United Kingdom. Our vision is to lead and support a recognised and valued Pharmacy Technician profession.
Responding to the publication of the Report of the UK Commission on Pharmacy Professional Leadership, Claire Steele, President of APTUK, said:
“APTUK acknowledges that Pharmacy Professional Leadership needs to evolve to meet the rapidly changing needs of healthcare provision. In doing so the Pharmacy Technician profession must be enabled to lead on matters pertaining to their profession, be fairly represented and listened to at all levels including relevant decision-making forums.
APTUK would like to thank all Pharmacy Technicians who participated in and contributed to the work of the Commission. We are pleased to see our collective efforts recognised in the recommendations for parity, equal status and mutual respect. It is important for APTUK to see these key points for the Pharmacy Technician profession being upheld throughout any subsequent process.
We will take time to consider the recommendations and listen to our members’ views before providing any further statements.”
