Fri 24 OctoberNHS Blood and Transplant Blood Donor Session

NHS Blood and Transplant is asking blood donors in Yeovil to make an appointment to donate blood to help keep stocks healthy throughout the autumn months.

Although overall blood use within the NHS has reduced, thanks to improvements in clinical and surgical practices, hospitals and patients still rely on more than 7,000 people attending a donation session every day across England and North Wales.

It is important that vital blood stocks are maintained at all times, as red blood cells have a shelf life of just 35 days and platelets a shelf life of only seven days. NHS Blood and Transplant needs to collect enough blood in the right quantities to meet patient needs and regular donors are crucial in enabling us to do so.  
 
Geraldine Parker Lead Donor Relations Manager for NHS Blood and Transplant, said: “We need to maintain healthy blood stocks all year round to make sure patients get the blood they need whenever they need it.  Some of our donors might have recently been abroad to somewhere that means they need to take a short break from donating.  So whether you’ve donated before or are thinking about giving blood for the first time, check out if your foreign holiday has affected whether you can donate now.  If you can donate, please book an appointment to give blood and save lives. You never know when you or your loved one may need a life saving transfusion.”

Sessions are between 13:00 - 15:15 and 16:45 - 19:00.
