Vacutainer Patient Stories

Vacutainer Patient Stories

I had blood tests carried out with Blue Horizon- they sent me the finger prick kit but I was only able to get a few drops out of my fingers and you have to fill a small test tube! There was no chance of me getting enough blood out, but I have quite poor circulation. I rang them up and they just sent me the kit with the needle etc (no extra cost) and I went to my local phlebotomist at the health centre and they were happy to draw the blood and I just put it straight in the post.

I have never used a finger prick test as I am a total wuss so I use a phlebotomist. I have used a BH vacutainer kit three times, I think. For one of them, I blagged a free blood draw from a nurse at my GP's surgery once, she was going to charge but didn't know how much to charge, so I got it for free!
