Blood Tests

The highly experienced nursing staff at the Paediatric Gut Investigation Clinic can arrange private blood tests for patients of all ages. We charge a phlebotomy fee of £30 in addition to the laboratory charges and the results are usually available within 48 hours, ensuring fast and effective diagnosis is provided.

Patients can visit any of our clinics in Horley, Dorking, or Wimbledon, meaning that we are ideally placed to provide blood tests for those living in Reigate, Croydon, Leatherhead, Kingston-upon-Thames, Tonbridge, Maidstone, Kensington, Hammersmith, Twickenham, Camden Town, Wandsworth, and all nearby areas in Surrey and London.

Blood tests are performed in children and adults for a number of reasons, including to test for:

 

  • Allergies
  • General state of health
  • Signs of infection
  • Some genetic problems

 

Our experienced paediatric nurses are experts in putting children and adults at ease and most tests take just a few minutes to complete. Our nurses will explain what they are doing during the process and you shouldn’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

For child blood tests, the nurse will apply a numbing spray or use some local anaesthetic cream (“magic cream”) on the back of both hands and sometimes on the inside of the elbows. The numbing spray works very quickly so the blood test can be taken straight after the spray is applied. The cream takes a little longer to work and so is covered with a small transparent plaster until the area is numb.

If you are concerned about the health of your child, yourself or a loved one, please contact the Paediatric Gut Investigation Clinic today to book a blood test for them. This will allow our first-class  professionals to fully investigate the cause of the allergy or health problems. If an issue is found, we will provide expert treatment and support to help overcome or manage any highlighted condition in the very best way possible.
