Working with the National Association of Phlebotomists
The National Association of Phlebotomists (NAP) is committed to taking phlebotomy forward through professional recognition, the sharing of knowledge and the development of skills. Their main objectives are to ensue that all Healthcare Workers performing blood collection, do so to a recognised standard of practice and promote good and safe techniques.
We at Greiner Bio-One have worked for many years with the NAP in the UK, and are proud of our friendly, open relationship with them. Along with the continued production of their national newsletter, we have recently sponsored their new venepuncture programme.
