Who is Suitable?
These courses are suitable for candidates of all ages, backgrounds and level of qualifications seeking to train as phlebotomists, either as their first occupation or as part of a career change. They are also suitable for those currently working in healthcare, but have little or no experience of phlebotomy (Clinic/Hospital Administrative Staff, Care Home Workers, Support Workers, Therapists, Pharmacists etc.).
The starting point is to attend the two-day Introductory Phlebotomy Course (Part 1) which awards a Certificate of Attendance – this course has no formal entry requirements, though all teaching is delivered in English. You can then move on to the Live Bloods Clinic Sessions (Part 2) which take place in an NHS facility and award an NHS Certificate of Competency on completion.

Introductory Phlebotomy Course (Part 1) - Two Days
Phlebotomy Course - Live Bloods Clinic Sessions (Part 2)
Under the supervision of our expert trainers, the final stage of our training gives you the chance to practice live blood taking with real patients in an NHS facility. Here you can put your previous theoretical knowledge and dry lab experience to use in a clinical setting, performing all the tasks would need to carry out as a practicing phlebotomist.
Number of sessions are determined based on need and dates are arranged on your completion of Part 1. Awarded jointly with the NHS Clinic in which your sessions take place, you will receive a Certificate of Competency after successfully fulfilling the necessary criteria, concluding the training you need to begin working as a qualified practitioner.
