Support Blood donation “A negative” appeal- Councillor Colly Kelly

Sinn Féin Councillor Colly Kelly has urged people in Derry to support an appeal by NI Blood Transfusion Service for “A negative” type blood after the service said stocks are low.

 Councillor Colly Kelly said “I would urge as many people as possible to support this appeal for “A negative” type blood, after the service said stocks are currently low.

You always think of patients needing blood transfusions in the event of road accidents but rarely do we think of people with medical conditions needing treatment all year around.

There is always a lot of pressure place on the Blood Transfusion service. The need for blood is constant, with 500 patients in the north needing transfusions each week

I would urge anyone who can help to go along to the next donation session in Derry  which takes place on  Friday 27th March Waterside Methodist Church 36 Clooney Terrace Session Times: 13.30 to 1600 & 1715 to 2000.
