Thank you to the phlebotomist I saw this week at the drop in clinic. Before he even started working at 8.30, there were over 20 people waiting to be seen and he was working alone due to illness. Despite the queue and the pressure, he was fantastic at keeping the waiting room informed of the situation and ensuring we had realistic expectations of waiting time. He regularly reinforced this information, acknowledging that new patients were arriving. When I was finally seen, I expected to meet with someone a bit flustered and stressed at the looming workload outside his door. To his credit he was polite and happy, greeted me warmly and did a fantastic job. I normally end up being treated like a pin cushion due to my deep hidden veins but he got it in one and all in all, even though I waited two hours, I left happy with the care I’d received. I just wanted someone to be aware that, for me, he did everything exactly spot on and should be credited for it.
