Children’s blood tests are important diagnostic tools that help paediatricians assess your child’s health. Blood tests for children are typically performed through a simple finger prick or standard needle blood draw, depending on your child’s age and the specific blood test needed. Paediatric blood tests provide doctors with valuable information for diagnosing illnesses and help them decide on the proper treatment.
At Intrigue Health, we offer convenient private blood testing in Bexley and Dartford. You can count on reliable and quick results for all paediatric blood tests.

What Is the Most Important Blood Test for Kids?
A Complete Blood Count (aka CBC) test is one of the most important blood tests for kids. Paediatricians use this type of blood test regularly to diagnose illness. Paediatricians may order a CBC as part of a routine checkup to screen for problems or because a child isn’t feeling well. The results from children’s blood test can help healthcare providers diagnose problems like anaemia, infections, inflammation, bleeding disorders, hereditary diseases, and certain systemic conditions.
A CBC test measures and evaluates the different components of blood, including:
- red blood cells
- white blood cells
