My child is anxious about having a blood test - preparing in the play hospital

Many children find it difficult to get their bloods taken, but preparing through play can make a big difference. Aaron and his mum visit the play specialist in the Teddy Hospital in Glasgow and talk about numbing cream, cold spray and distraction. The play specialist then helps to distract him during his blood test.
