"Excellent paediatric phlebotomy service"

About: Hillingdon Hospital

I took my 4 year old son for a morning (9am appointment) to have his blood taken, we arrived early and were seen straight away at 08.40am. It was our first time on the ward and my son's only experience in hospital, the nurse was fantastic, very kind and age appropriate with my son. There were no tears, marks or bruises and more importantly, neither my son (or myself) left distressed, much much better than I had anticipated. Well done to the nurse and the whole team- would recommend to anyone with a similar need in a heartbeat. Thank you.

Thank you for the comment you posted on NHS Choices. Having a blood test is never a pleasant experience. I am glad you and your son's experience was positive and you felt welcomed by the team on Wendy ward. I will ensure your comments are fed back to the whole team. Thank you Chris Mann, Nursing Services Manager/Matron Paediatrics
