Today marks World Blood Donor Day, where we highlight the need for safe blood and blood products for transfusion around the world. This is a critical aspect of care and public health, and safe blood donation saves millions of lives and improves the health and quality of life of many patients every day.
The need for blood is universal, but not everyone has access to it. In the UK, we need nearly 5,000 people to give blood every day to meet the needs of hospitals and patients.
Blood or the components of blood are used to treat patients with medical conditions such as anaemia, cancer blood disorders, and those having surgery. Also, Blood can be very useful for research and training, and to help develop tests.
