Phlebotomy / Venepuncture

“"Well designed course, theory morning and practical afternoon. Well presented with lots of opportunity to ask questions which were answered fully.”"

Course Aims

To train delegates in the safe and efficient practice of taking a blood sample.

Please note: This course is aimed to teach and develop both knowledge and practical skills. However, competence must be determined in delegate's own workplace under full clinical supervision which participants will need to arrange with their employer.

Suitable For

Any healthcare provider working under supervision in the public or private sector who may be required to take a venous sample of blood from a patient or client as part of their care using the Venous Vacutainer system. If your setting uses the Monovette system please do let us know at the point of booking. This course is ideal for doctors, practice/community nurses and medical support workers.

Course Length

1 day - the course starts at 09:00 and can run through to 16:00 - this finish time will depend on the number of delegates attending and their level of experience - please call if you have further queries concerning this or any other aspect of the training.

Pre-requisite

Delegates must be employed in an environment where this knowledge and skill is required for genuine clinical reasons and evidence of this may be requested on course booking. Delegates must be employed or seeking employment.

Training will be given using the Vacutainer system. Please bring a small sample of disposables if your organisation uses a different blood collection system.
