“I welcome this book as the first publication on venepuncture and cannulation in the United Kingdom. The wide variety of clinicians offering these skills to their patients is welcome and makes the most of the talent in the NHS, while offering patients choice and an efficient service. The book provides a comprehensive yet concise overview of relevant information and assumes no specialist knowledge."
