LearnPro (mandatory prior to training)

Practitioners must complete the NHSGGC 157: Venepuncture and Cannulation e-learning module on NHS LearnPro.

Failure to complete this before attending training will result in practitioner being refused entry and asked to book once this has been completed.

Practical Training

  • Venepuncture only
  • Cannulation only
  • Venepuncture and cannulation

All staff wishing to attend this training must have approval from their Line Manager as the Nominator.

Places for these workshops are booked by completing the Nomination form and emailing to practicedevelopmentnominations@ggc.scot.nhs.uk.

Practitioners must work in an area where there is a clinical need for the skill.

Competency Assessment

A 2 month period of supervised practice and competency assessment follows attendance at the practical session.

Individuals are not deemed competent until they have received their completion certificate from Practice Development.

It is the responsibility of the individual to review and maintain their competence thereafter.

Competency booklets will be supplied during the training session.

Completed competency booklets should be emailed to practicedevelopment.enquiries@ggc.scot.nhs.uk

Important

If practitioners have already completed venepuncture training and achieved competence in another health board, and are able to provide documentary evidence of this, they should contact Practice Development to confirm this training and competence is transferrable to NHSGGC.

These practitioners should still complete supervised practice using the NHSGGC venepuncture competency book.

A copy of this completed booklet, signed off by your line manager, should be kept in appropriate training files at local level as evidence.

They should also access and complete the NHSGGC 157 venepuncture and cannulation module on NHS LearnPro.
