Emmerdale star Harvey Rogerson undergoes blood tests

On Harvey’s parent-run Instagram account yesterday (Monday, May 13), it was revealed that Harvey had been really brave when having some routine blood tests.

Going for the tests used to be really difficult for him, with his parents congratulating him on taking such a brave step.


Alongside a photo of Harvey smiling with a plaster on his arm, the post was captioned: “Super proud of Harvey this morning…. He was amazing having his routine blood tests. When he was younger it was a really difficult experience as he got so upset … we even used to have play therapy before the appointment to try and help him but now he is absolutely fine…

“He made friends with half the waiting room and entertained the nurse on duty who remembered him from last time and said he had made her day. Children with Downs Syndrome have a greater chance to develop coeliac or issues with their thyroid so it’s really important to have regular tests… so far Harvey has been fine and we have no concerns at all regarding his health for which we are forever grateful. Well done H, you smashed it.”
