Children under 10yrs old

Children under 10yrs old

Taking blood from babies and young children can be difficult.

This is due to their small veins and also the fact they don’t always understand what is happening or why.

In order to make this experience as easy as we can, we only take blood from under 10s when two Phlebotomists are present.

You do not need to make an appointment but we can only offer this service at the following centres at these specific times.
