Kelly urges support for summer blood donation sessions

Councillor Colly Kelly said “Blood donation is very important for the proper delivery of health care. Each year thousands of patients require blood transfusions in our hospitals, because they are undergoing surgery, recovering from cancer or have been in a serious accident.

????????????????????????????????????

 

There is a lot of pressure placed on the Blood Transfusion service particularly over the summer with people being away on holidays. They have said that the need for blood is constant, with hundreds of patients in the north needing transfusions each week, but at this time of year it can be particularly difficult to maintain their blood stocks.

 

I would urge anyone who can, to go along to the blood donation session at the Guildhall in  Derry on the following dates
