Phlebotomy Training

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.

The nearest available intensive phlebotomy course will take place in West London (W6 0TA) between 10am and 5.30pm (lunch provided). In a small group you will be instructed in how to take blood ensuring that you adhere to strict infection control principles and policies.


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

  • Demonstrate appropriate infection control principles when performing phlebotomy.
