National Blood week was held between 19th-25th June and is aimed at getting more people to donate blood. Last week, we asked all our staff if they would like to sign up to the blood and organ register. We are pleased to say that a large number of staff have registered as organ donors and have also booked appointments to give blood.
Kristian Melson, the companies Compliance Manager has also registered to give platelets every 2 weeks as they are in such short supply. Platelets are tiny blood cells that help your body form clots to stop bleeding so are very useful in cancer patients and after major traumas. Did you know a platelet donation can take up to 90 minutes?!
