I had my training in phlebotomy (2 day course) at Reading, Berks last year. I did the training to be more employable and a multi-tasker. I was interviewed after the training in Oxford and Ashford Trusts for a trainee phlebotomist position but was not successful. I applied again later in a surgery and still not successful. I was so discouraged. But today I have started working as a phlebotomist, under supervision of a practice nurse. I am over the moon! On my first try to draw blood on a real person, I was shaking. But after few draws, I felt more relax and confident. Geopace Training made the difference. My job prospects had widened. Thank you Geopace, you are a star!
The course is very much hands-on ‘practical’ wise as well as easy to understand including the course notes of which I still refer to today. Artificial arms were used containing veins and artificial blood. As a retired police officer I started my post as a Community Phlebotomist being shadowed initially by experienced phlebotomists and for the previous few weeks am working alone in GP Surgeries and in the community. If you are wanting a career in phlebotomy then this course is a must!
