Thank you for sharing your experience. I am concerned to hear that you are having issues with your arm three weeks after your blood test. To be able to investigate this, please contact me through our PALS team on 01708 435 454 or email PALS@bhrhospitals.nhs.uk with further details. Yours sincerely Flo Panel-Coates Director of Nursing
