As well as mixing a comprehensive theory programme with an unrivalled number of clinical practice hours, our courses are relaxed and good fun. We have expert trainers and a bright, airy and modern facility in Central London with good transport links.
But don't just take our word for it, our courses receive a lot of praise from the trainee phlebotomists that go on them. We ask students to complete a training evaluation form following their training, read some of what people have had to say below:
I'd like to thank the Viapath team, it was a great course and I received lots of support during my clinical placement which enabled me to pass successfully. Thank you so much for a great experience.
I very much enjoyed the course and the way it was taught, the trainers were very friendly.
The way the trainer presented the course was excellent.
It was led in a way that made it easy to learn and allayed all my fears of taking blood.
Thank you very much for the certificates. I am enormously grateful for the whole experience. Wish you all the best to everyone in Viapath Phlebotomy Training Team. You are truly brilliant....
I am thankful to all of you for giving me the opportunity to start a new chapter in my life. Massive thanks to the Viapath team
Thank you to all Viapath staff who have accepted me with open arms and been very supportive and helpful. I have not always found it easy and have been out of my comfort zone on a few occassions. However, staff at St Thomas's, Kings and Dulwich have been amazing and have never made me feel unworthy or inferior even though I did have some anxieties to begin with. I really appreciate the time and efforts of all those that I have worked alongside.
I think Seymour and his team was really good. Learnt and Laugh. Thank you very much.
I would also like to say thank you on behalf of the whole undergraduate team.
Based on verbal feedback from students, the training again has been of very high standards and they found it very useful.
Thank you for all you support (in or out of the training area)
Just like to begin with saying what an incredible learning journey I am experiencing. I have loved all the the placements, I've met some lovely people and had continuous support from your amazing staff! Thank you!
I never had the opportunity to thank you for all the support and help that I received from you all at Viapath and St Thomas Hospital. Having the opportunity to undergo the training despite the obstacles that I initially had when trying to begin my practical training is something that I will always be grateful for. During my training everyone was so kind, helpful and wanted the best for me, I felt that genuinely and I’m honestly so grateful for them all (especially Paul & Dorothy who really influenced a lot of my progress as a phlebotomist).
Just want to express my experience with my clinical training today, it's very informative and enjoyable. Thanks for the given opportunity . Will definitely recommend your services.
It has been an amazing experience time passed so quick, loved every minute of it!! Thank you, thank you all!
Please would you pass on my thanks to everyone at St Thomas's for their guidance and teaching throughout the course. Also for the support I received when I faltered a little part way through the course. Special thank you to Seymour, Dan (patience of a saint), Raaesa, Gus (at Kings) and last but not least the lovely Jane who was a calm and kind teacher when I was just starting out.
Thank you very much for the opportunity allowing me to do my training with viapath. It was a great pleasure having to meet with all the brilliant staff and management team.I would love to be a part of your brilliant team. Thank very much for everything.
I found you an excellent tutor and passionate about your field.
I wanted to take the opportunity to thank your Trust for a very positive experience as a Viapath phlebotomy student with a physical disability.
Having worked in senior positions within the health and social care sector for a number of years, I have had both negative and positive experiences in my career regarding my disability.
I contacted Viapath as I wished to change career direction, and undertook student training as a phlebotomist in March 2018. Throughout the process both Seymour Poraicu-Vaz and Paul Kinyanjui were positive about accommodating my disability in order for me to be able to train with them. Once practicing in the clinic, the staff at St Thomas’ Blood Department were also supportive in assisting me, where necessary, in order for me to be able to train and finally qualify.
On finding out that they had passed their final assessment.
I am delighted to know. Its made my year!!
Many thanks to everyone on the team who were so patient and helpful.
