Hospital puts out urgent call for blood donation

Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) is urgently calling for members of the public with ‘O' positive and ‘O' negative to donate blood this week.

Dr Eyitayo Fakunle, Consultant Haematologist, revealed that due to recent emergency usage, stocks in this blood type are low.

“With the upcoming holiday weekend reducing the usual number of donors, the Blood Donor Centre wants to ensure supplies are adequately stocked,” Dr Fakunle.

“We are asking people to donate between Monday through Thursday from 8.30am to 2.30pm so the required testing of donated blood can be carried out and results received ahead of the holiday.

“All of us in the blood donor centre would like to thank our community in advance for their kind assistance in ensuring we can continue to save lives.”

Donors can call 236-5067 to make an appointment.
