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 looking for your help and encourage donors age 17 and above to attend the local blood donation session in St Macartin’s Cathedral Hall, Enniskillen on Monday 17th and Tuesday 18th October.
