Patient Support Video.

Have a quick watch of this video which details how to take a blood sample - it takes around 3 minutes and will help you to fully understand the sample taking process, which is very easy to undertake.

Before you start, it will help to make sure that your hands are warm - you can do this by immersing them in warm water for 4 minutes, and do some gentle exercise such as squeezing your fists or shaking your hands. 

Make sure that you have everything in place, keep calm, and don't rush - 99.5% of patients achieve a successful sample with a fully red wand - just be patient, and use your spare lancet if neccesary. Good luck!
