The Basic Phlebotomy Course covers the theory behind phlebotomy and provides participants with an opportunity to develop their practical skills. It is delivered by Phlebotomy Training Services: the first company in the UK to hold an accredited certificate. No previous experience is required for this course.

The course will look at the theory behind phlebotomy and participants will develop their practical skills using the most up to date techniques and equipment.  It will cover all of the competencies set out in CH132 (National Occupational Standard for Phlebotomy). Phlebotomy Training Services use safety equipment in all of their training in accordance with the requirements of the Health & Saftey (Sharp Instruments in Healthcare Regulations) 2013. Once you have completed this training you will have all of the skills and knowledge necessary to be able to work as a phlebotomist.

There will be no more than 8 participants per session on the course.
