General Information

Medical officers have been issued with the North Thames RHA  “Recommendations for Blood Transfusion Procedure” and are advised to acquaint themselves with the “Handbook of Transfusion Medicine” 2007 issued by the United Kingdom Health Departments, available on the wards and departments.

The safest and most efficient hospital transfusion service is achieved when there is regular and frequent consultation and communication between clinicians and laboratory staff; a Hospital Transfusion Committee exists for this purpose.  Donor blood is a limited national resource and the best possible use should be made of it.  The Blood Group Serology Department welcomes any visit by clinicians.
