QEH in urgent need of blood donations

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) Blood Bank has issued an urgent appeal for A positive and O positive blood donations.

Donated blood products will help replenish the QEH Blood Bank’s supply to ensure that blood products are readily available for patients with serious medical needs such as cancer patients, people with blood disorders, premature babies, cardiac procedures and trauma victims.

Volunteers between the ages of 18 and 70, who weigh at least 110 pounds, and are in generally good health are asked to donate blood at the National Blood Collecting Centre located at Ladymeade Gardens, St. Michael, between 8 am and 3.15 pm on weekdays or 8 am and 12 noon on Saturdays.

Each whole blood donation can be used to save up to three lives.
