Venepuncture otherwise known as Phlebotomy is the art of drawing blood from a vein in order to a analyse specific parameters in the blood. This Venepuncture course / Phlebotomy course is a full day course with a theory portion and a dry practical portion. The dry lab allows delegates to practice taking blood from dummy mannequins to learn the skill and technique of Venepuncture / Phlebotomy.

One delegate will act as the patient and the other delegate will act as the phlebotomist.
