About: Hinchingbrooke Hospital

My daughter was sent to have a blood test from her out patients appointment today. During the blood test she unexpectedly fainted. I was amazed at how well the Phlebotomy team dealt with the situation all three of them working to make sure she was ok. One of the very kind staff collected a wheelchair so I could take my daughter out, another sacrificed their Kit-Kat to help my daughter recover. I will always be extremely grateful to them for the kindness and compassion they showed today.

Response from Hinchingbrooke Hospital

Dear Cate, thank you very much for your kind words, which we have passed on to our phlebotomists at The Pathology Partnership, who run this service on our behalf. We hope your daughter recovered quickly and that she enjoyed the Kit Kat!
