Blood tests for children aged under 10

Lewisham: If a child under 10 years old needs a blood test, this must be booked at South Lewisham Health Centre, which offers a specialised clinic for children. This is the only blood test centre in Lewisham that is able to take blood from children under the age of 10 years. Please check for the correct option when booking.

Children under 10 from Greenwich and Bexley can get bloods taken from specially trained staff at Queen Elizabeth Hospital or Queen Mary's Hospital in Sidcup.
