We only offer phlebotomy (blood taking) service at the clinic itself for adults and children aged over 14 years old. If a child under 14 years of age requires a blood test your doctor can discuss the options of how this can be arranged externally to the clinic. If a child requires topical (on the skin) anaesthetic gel prior to the blood test to reduce the discomfort, please discuss this with your doctor at the appointment.

Children under 17 years of age must be accompanied by a consenting parent or guardian for all appointments, including blood tests.
