"Kids Blood Test"

About: Basildon University Hospital / Dermatology

M,y 5 year old daughter requires regular blood tests. Kids Blood tests are only provided on Wed & Thur during school/working hours. I live 40 mins away from the hospital.

I have to take a day off work & my daughter has to take time off work for a blood test. This is not acceptable! Please extend the times for kids blood tests & also provide kids blood tests in other hospitals/out reach centres.
