Capillary Blood Sampling and Analysis

This one day course will provide participants with all the skills required to take capillary blood samples and to use the analyser in use in the facility successfully.

The course falls into three parts, the first being general instruction as to how to take a capillary blood sample using a finger prick, the second being instruction as to how to use the client’s analyser of choice – which will be developed with each individual client and the appropriate manufacturer, and the third being a practical demonstration of the skills required, a period of physical practice and then an assessment of the skills developed.

Staff Assessment Service

If your staff are already taking blood we can assess their practice and if appropriate issue a Certificate of Competency and come back to recertify them on a regular basis.
