All in a day’s work for Wollongong Transfusion Laboratory
The Aeromedical Retrieval Team has nothing but praise for NSW..
Our Transfusion teams manage the safe supply, storage and release of donor blood and blood products from our hospital laboratory blood banks.

Our teams advise clinicians on which type of blood to give patients depending on their blood type.
We supply donor blood products to:
We work with the Ambulance Aeromedical Control Centre (ACC) to ensure retrieval teams can carry blood to save patients with critical bleeding from car accidents to shark attacks, on the ground or in the air.
We review our blood stocks daily to minimise wastage and ensure safe, timely supply of products for patients.
