More blood donors needed

York Press: More blood donors needed More blood donors needed

RESIDENTS across North Yorkshire have been urged to give blood this spring.

NHS Blood and Transplant needs more than 7,000 people to donate every day to collect the amount of blood needed by hospitals across England and North Wales – with O negative and B negative particularly needed.

Donna Batty, lead donor relations manager for Yorkshire and the North, said: “This time of year is an important time to give, as stocks are often more vulnerable around public holidays, when people are busy getting out and about or going away for breaks.

“Giving blood now and in the next few weeks will also help boost blood stocks before people turn their attention towards England in the Football World Cup. Please don’t forget about those hospital patients who rely on blood donors to save their lives or keep them well.”
