Alison, the founder of Phlebotomy Training Services, has been a phlebotomist for over 15 years and is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable phlebotomists in the country. This is exactly why she was recently asked to give some talks to various businesses and groups in our local area.
The first place she gave a talk was at the Northallerton Probus Club. The club is made of retired and semi-retired gentlemen who meet regularly to discuss business and events with other like-minded gentlemen.
They were an interesting venue and group to give the speech to but they were enthralled by Alison’s stories, and it reportedly was one of the most interesting talks they’ve had in years. In their own words:
‘The thought that sticking needles into other people could be an exciting career would not occur to most people. However, Alison Purkiss managed to hold the rapt attention of our best attendance figure for more than half a year for over an hour and fully demonstrated the point (!).’
We have also been working with Care UK, giving the staff in Prisons talks on the practice of phlebotomy and training them on how to perform phlebotomy properly. Care UK have been providing health and social care to people in the UK for over 30 years.
We find this kind of work incredibly rewarding. Phlebotomy is a much aligned practice, with very little understanding from third parties of the skill involved in it. Also, we know that the work we do with organisations like Care UK will directly go on to benefit and improve people’s lives.
If you would like to talk to us about giving a talk or seminar, or would simply like to learn more about the services we provide then just call us on 01609 751 610.
