We have been asked to share the following information:
The Northern Ireland Blood Transfusion Service is asking for your support, if possible.
“In Northern Ireland upwards of 850 units of blood are used by patients each week, yet 94% of the eligible population still do not give blood. Donated blood is usually transfused within three to four days of donation and we need to attract many new donors to ensure a safe supply of blood to our hospitals. Blood is used in numerous ways, such as going to a child with leukaemia, a mother during childbirth, a person undergoing routine surgery, a person with cancer, or someone involved in an accident.”
A local donation session is taking place in the Stormont Hotel on Tuesday 25th January. See information below on booking an appointment. Thank you.
