"Worst blood test ever"

About: North Middlesex Hospital

I've had many blood tests in my life but this one was by far the worst. Phlebotomist was very patronising, but more importantly, left me with a huge bruise on my arm. I have never in my life had any bruising from blood tests, because I assume they were done by more competent people, and is most definitely not due to my "transparent skin"as they put it! If, like me, you get a referral with the choice between this place and North Middlesex hospital, do yourself a favour and go to North Mid where it is somewhat busier but no complaints about the procedure at all!

Thank you for your feedback.

Glad that you were happy with the treatment you received from our Phlebotomist. Sorry to read that you had a bad experience at another blood centre.

I am the phlebotomist service manager, nenita.clapham@nhs.net and will be sharing your comments with the team.
