Over 10 years ago Alison Purkiss founded Phlebotomy Training Services. She was a practicing phlebotomist herself and noticed that some of the training being provided was below a standard she felt correct. Therefore she established PTS based on a foundation of quality training.
To ensure that the training we provide is amongst the best available we adhere to a couple of strict rules. The first being that all our trainers are not only qualified phlebotomists, but also qualified educators. This means that each student gets the attention they need to become some of the highest calibre phlebotomists around.
We have worked with a number of GP surgeries in the past, and have trained their staff to become phlebotomists. By having multiskilled staff, GPs can focus on other jobs, to provide a better and more efficient service to their patients. In the past we have worked with:
A recent student had this to say about their course:
For anyone who is considering training as a phlebotomist I would thoroughly recommend attending a PTS training course. Had a fabulous time learning new skills last weekend in Glasgow, the weekend just flew by. Andrew and Alison are great at putting you at your ease, and no question is too stupid. Loads of time and equipment to develop your skills. Thank you very much Alison and Andrew and hope you’re feeling better Alison.
