Appeal for Easter blood donors

THE National Blood Service is appealing for people in Merseyside to make time to give blood as the Easter bank holiday approaches.

It is particularly crucial that people continue to donate blood over the next few weeks as blood donation sessions are not held over the extended weekend. Although supplies of red blood cells in the region are currently healthy, the break from blood collection can affect supplies of blood products such as platelets, which have a shelf life of just five days.

Platelets are tiny fragments of cells which help the blood to clot. They are often given to patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy, which can lower platelet levels. The platelets from four donations of blood are ‘pooled’ to make enough for an adult transfusion.

Rachel Roberts, spokesperson for the National Blood Service, said:- “It is incredibly important as we approach the Easter break that all our donors make a special effort to give blood. As well as helping maintain our platelet supplies, over five thousand lifesaving units of red blood cells will also be needed this month for patients in Merseyside.”

Anyone aged over 17 and up to their 60th birthday, weighing more than 50 kg (7 stone 12 lbs) and in general good health could potentially start saving lives by becoming a blood donor. For more information on giving blood, including details of your nearest blood donation session, call 0845 7 711 711 or visit www.blood.co.uk
