Blood Transfusion

The Blood Transfusion laboratories provide a 24 hour service, 365 days a year for all our three hospital Trusts.

Our laboratories provide both standard and highly-specialised blood and blood components to meet the diverse requirements of patients who are dependent on these products.

We provide:

  • transfusion guidance; for example we have evidence-based maximum surgical blood ordering schedules
  • blood ordering in complex clinical situations such as bone marrow and solid organ transplantations
  • poly trauma.

We also have a comprehensive range of clinical policies for blood transfusion incorporating every aspect of the transfusion process.

All our blood transfusion services have full traceability from the donor to the recipient.
