Phlebotomy Training Services were founded over 10 years ago by Alison Purkiss. With over 15 years’ experience as a phlebotomist Alison noticed that there was a lack of quality training available in the UK, and set to change it.
Therefore PTS was founded on the principles of quality training. We ensure this happens in two main ways. The first is to ensure that we never have more than 6 students per trainer in each class. We also ensure that all our trainers are fully qualified educators as well as being qualified phlebotomists. By doing so we ensure that all our students get the attention and quality training they need to be successful phlebotomists.
Increasing numbers of care homes are realising the benefits of having a team of trained phlebotomists within the facility.
Blood tests can be taken quickly with minimum disturbance to staff and service users – diagnosis can be expedited and where blood tests are used to manage levels of medication a swift intervention can stop a situation escalating.
Service users benefit from bloods being taken from within an existing holistic care package without intervention from outside a familiar environment and if trips to a GP surgery are no longer required staff and service users are free to concentrate on more important tasks.

One of our recent students had this to say about their course:
I attended a course and I was a bit sceptical, thinking they can’t teach us much in 2 days but I finished it and I got amazed how much you learn in such short period. I recommend this course to everyone. You have toys to practice on with the real stuff and you spend a lot of time practicing. I am still impressed by the quality of service; educators are amazing and they know how to teach you everything you need to know. Most important part is that you also have to be engaged.
