PHLEBOTOMY (Venepuncture) NHS

Phlebotomists are specially trained certified healthcare professional that typically work in the NHS/Private hospitals or blood banks. As a phlebotomist, you will take blood samples from patients. The samples are examined in a laboratory and the results can be used to diagnose diseases and conditions.

We specialise in core-competency skill training for medical practitioners, healthcare workers and those wishing to enter the medical arena with the necessary basic skills to gain new employment opportunities.


By the end of the phlebotomy course, candidates will be able to:

  • Understand the competencies set out in CHS132 (National Occupational Standard for Obtaining Venous Blood Samples).
  • Understand the legal aspects of phlebotomy.
  • Use the vacutainer system to collect a blood sample.
  • List the potential complications during and after taking blood.


  • The session will begin with a theoretical component including all competencies set out in CHS132 (National Occupational Standard for Phlebotomy) followed by demonstrations and then practise.
  • Participants will practise on simulation arms.
  • You will be given ample opportunity to practise on the manikins.
  • Once confident at taking blood from the manikin you will have the opportunity to take blood from a fellow participant providing they give consent.
  • You will have the opportunity to use the vacutainer blood taking systems.
