Blood Transfusion Service

28th Mar 2022

The Northern Ireland Blood Transfusion Service is asking for your support, if at all 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.

They are looking for donors to attend the local blood donation session in St Patrick’s Community Centre, Portaferry on Monday 11th April.

Thank you for your time and interest, your contribution would be much appreciated.
