The Association of Anatomical Pathology Technology (AAPT) is the recognised professional body for anatomical pathology technologists employed in hospital and public mortuaries across the United Kingdom. We also welcome equivalent anatomical pathology technologists from overseas. Formed in 2003 with support from the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), Royal College of Pathologists and the Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH), the AAPT is acknowledged as the principle voice for the profession by all major stakeholders allied to anatomical pathology technology.

The AAPT is committed to working with the appropriate authorities and organisations to help ensure, and improve, the professional, educational and practical standards for technologists across the United Kingdom and beyond. Policy is driven by an elected Council and its subsequent committees and members are encouraged to become involved in this process.
