Phlebotomy/Health Care Assistant Appointments


We currently have 3 Healthcare Assistants (HCAs) Mandie & Anne are trained at HCA NVQ Level 3. They perform several essential tasks. Appointments with Anne, Mandie & Sarah can be booked up to approximately 6 weeks in advance.


 

Their duties include:


  • Phlebotomy (Blood Taking) *
  • ECGs (Heart Tracings) *
  • Blood Pressure checks
  • 24 hr Blood Pressure *
  • Some Vaccinations
  • Ear Syringing (Anne)
  • Smoking Cessation (Mandie)


The last blood test appointment available is 14:10 (Monday- Friday) this is due to St Richards hospital van coming to collect the blood samples shortly after. For this reason we ask that morning appointments are kept mainly for blood taking.


* Please note these tests must have been ordered by the Doctors or Nurses prior to booking


EARLY APPOINTMENTS WITH THE HCA’S ARE NOW AVAILABLE ON A TUESDAY AND THURSDAY FROM 7.30am FOR WORKERS.
