Dear Massimo and Max, I would like to thank you for training me as a Phlebotomist this past weekend 18/19 06 2016 . I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of the class room session. Firstly you made us feel at ease and comfortable which made us open up and we took away lots and lots of knowledge with us. I have never dreamt in a million years to be a Phlebotomist but because of your great teaching techniques and personality, you gave me the confidence and the skill I acquired from you just naturally developed. I have started taking bloods at my work place on the 21/6/16 and I found that all the hard work during the class room training really paid of. I must say on a person it is much easy to penetrate the needle than on the prosthetic arm. I guess this was to prepare me for the worse. Once again thank you and I look forward to submitting my essay/ assignment. Have a blessed day.

I attended the two day level 3 phlebotomy course by Phlebotomy Training Services held in Liverpool 14-15 May 2016. There was an unusually small group of just 6 that attended the course made up of 5 ladies and 1 man. Jo Marchant was out tutor for the two days and she proved to be an excellent person to teach us. I was booked on the course as I had recently aquired a job as a HCA in a Dr's surgery. They required someone to run their blood clinic every morning to relieve the practice nurse so she could concentrate on chronic disease management. The theory of the course mainly took place on the first day where we learned about the many different aspects involved in venesection including hygeine, tecnique, procedure, different systems and possible complications. At the end of day 1 we were given a multiple choice questionaire. Jo had covered all the material in class and had made sure that we understood so if we were listening properly there was no need for mistakes. The second day was mainly filled with practical work. We were working in pairs and given as much time and as many needles and tubes as we needed until we felt we were confident to undertake the practical exam. Jo was with us every step of the way to answer any questions and gave us oodles of confidence. Even so, I was feeling very nervous on entering the examination room. This was probably down to general nerves and being in a test enviroment than a lack of confidence in my ability. I was also aware in the back of my mind that I was returning to work the very next day with a full clinic of patients booked in with me expecting to have their blood samples taken. My practical exam went very well. I scored 34/34 and was so pleased with myself. We had to go through the whole procedure from calling the patient in, taking the sample and giving aftercare. We had to remember some key points such as indentifying the patient, correct hand washing, using the torniquet correctly and a nice smooth and accurate puncture into the skin with the needle. Although I felt very confident during the exam , my hands were very shakey. Now that I have gone on to gain some clinical experience I realise that this is normal and to be expected when you first start taking live bloods. Jo made sure that I went away from the course feeling confident and competent in my ability even though I was aprehensive of what the next day would bring. I thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience of the course. I do not feel that on the job training could be as effective as we learned to understand the veins and how they work, good and poor practice and how to deal with complications should they arise. Although I believe you do not truly learn until you gain the experience, the experience would be useless without the knowlege. The knowledge that leads to great phlebotomists! Thank you Phlebotomy Training Services and Jo.
