We would also love it if you could bring a friend, colleague or family member with you, as we need up to 200 new blood donors each and every week. The need for blood is constant, so we really need your help to maintain a safe supply of blood to our hospitals during the winter months.
Please attend a local blood donation session. It takes less than an hour - and what better gift could you give?
The NIBTS exists to fully supply the needs of all hospitals and clinical units in the province with safe and effective blood and blood products and other related services. The discharge of this function includes a commitment to the care and welfare of our voluntary donors.
The Northern Ireland Blood Transfusion Service, established in 1946, is an independent, Special Agency of the DHSSPS. It is responsible for the collection, testing and distribution of over 64,000 blood donations each year. The Service operates three mobile units at around 250 locations throughout the province. Including headquarters, located on the site of the Belfast City Hospital, a total of almost 1,000 donation sessions are held each year.
