Child Phlebotomy: NMUH

Under Review — this page was due to be reviewed by Wednesday, 27 July 2022. The information shown here may be outdated.

NMUH provides blood test services for children (<2, 2-16 years) in clinics in the hospital. Blood test services vary depending on a child's age.

NMUH no longer offers a service for fasting blood tests. Paediatric consultants advise this is almost always unnecessary.
