Venepuncture & Cannulation Book








“I welcome this book as the first publication on venepuncture and cannulation in the United Kingdom. The wide variety of clinicians offering these skills to their patients is welcome and makes the most of the talent in the NHS, while offering patients choice and an efficient service. The book provides a comprehensive yet concise overview of relevant information and assumes no specialist knowledge."

"I liked the small group and varied ways of teaching inc exam/practical/discussion/quiz etc."

Managing Director, RN, Paramedic Training Co., Summer 2016

I just wanted to thank you and especially Paulette for an excellent course yesterday in Nottingham. I must say Paulette was a very skilled, experienced and professional trainer with a soft but firm manner. She expertly guided the conversation to learning points that related to the different work streams of the group, using her experience in the clinical field to support the students in their individual learning goals. A big thank you for a professional day.
