Thank you to pharmacy technicians

A ‘Thank you’ from Dr Keith Ridge 

Chief pharmaceutical officer (CPhO) Dr Keith Ridge has written an open letter to all pharmacy technicians, published on the Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK website, to thank them for their incredible contribution to and support for excellent patient care throughout the COVID-19 pandemic so far.

In the letter he outlines future plans for the profession and proposes strengthening the advice, feedback and opinion from senior pharmacy technicians currently working within the NHS including primary care. The letter invites APTUK president Liz Fidler and the APTUK Committee to work with the CPhO team to develop a sustainable approach that will be beneficial to pharmacy technicians in terms of career progression and professional development.
