It’s World Blood Donor Day – consider donating!

Media Resources & Contact
14th June, 2023

Happy World Blood Donor Day to all those blood donors in our communities, for their selfless generosity and life-saving donations.

This year’s theme is “Give blood, give plas­ma, share life, share often.”

It focus­es on patients requir­ing life-long trans­fu­sion sup­port and under­lines the role every sin­gle per­son can play, by giv­ing the valu­able gift of blood or plasma.

It also high­lights the impor­tance of giv­ing blood or plas­ma reg­u­lar­ly to cre­ate a safe and sus­tain­able sup­ply of blood and blood prod­ucts that can always be avail­able so that all patients in need can receive time­ly treatment.

Here at NSW Health Pathol­o­gy, our Trans­fu­sion teams man­age the safe sup­ply, stor­age and release of donor blood and blood prod­ucts from our hos­pi­tal lab­o­ra­to­ry blood banks.

We take great care and respon­si­bil­i­ty to ensure those pre­cious dona­tions get to those who need it most.

We help patients need­ing blood trans­fu­sions due to can­cer, surgery, preg­nan­cy and child­birth, anaemia, bleed­ing dis­or­ders, acci­dent or trau­ma and more.

If you’d like to roll up your sleeves and donate blood, vis­it vis­it www.lifeblood.com.au, call 13 14 95 or down­load the Donate Blood app.
