This course is also well suited to the needs of Occupational Health Nurses who need to take blood.
10 years ago Alison Purkiss established Phlebotomy Training Services. A phlebotomist with over 15 years experience, she noticed that there was something missing from most phlebotomy training providers, and subsequently there was a lack of proficient phlebotomists.
So she started PTS, based on a foundation of quality training and 10 years later we are still going strong. We ensure that the training provided here is amongst the best available by adhering to 2 main rules. We never have more than 6 students per trainer in our class, and we ensure that our trainers are not only qualified phlebotomists but also qualified educators.
As pressure on NHS finances increases CCGS are looking to minimise staff costs. Having a team of phlebotomists within a CCCG will free nurses from taking blood enabling them to concentrate more closely on their core activities.
We can help with training new phlebotomists, providing refresher training for existing staff or the assessment of existing phlebotomy staff with a view to service improvement

One participant at a recent course gave us this feedback:
If anyone is thinking of booking on this course… DO IT!!! I had a fab time, learning new skills with the lovely Olivia in Birmingham. The course taught both theory and practical skills in a friendly environment that put me at ease. Olivia gave me the confidence and skills to progress onto a new career path. Exciting times ahead!!!Thank you Olivia
