An insight into a clinician with needle phobia

We love getting people involved in our projects. A few weeks ago, we put the call out to find people a little more rare than our needle phobic patients – a clinician with a needle phobia.

We were lucky enough to find Kristy Hawkins who is an anaesthetic technician. She first discovered that she had a needle phobia at age 7.

She kindly agreed to share her story with us so we have put together a few key insights and her top tips for new needle phobes.
