Accessing Leicester's children's phlebotomy service

Children's hospital logo
Leicester Children's hospital based at the Royal Infirmary

If your child's GP decides he/she needs to have their blood taken then they will need to access the children’s phlebotomy service, which is run by Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust.  You will need to take your child for their appointment with their Community Children’s Phlebotomy /Outpatient team work at either the Merlyn Vaz Health and Social Care Centre and Westcotes Health Centre. 

You can access this service via your GP who can book an appointment or you can call 0300 3000 007 (option 1) and book an appointment yourself. 

The clinics are:

  • Monday and Wednesday at Westcotes Health Centre, Fosse Rd S, Leicester LE3 0LP
  • Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at Merlyn Vaz Health and Social Care Centre, 1 Spinney Hill Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3GH
