Blood Donation Sessions for North Yorkshire in March

11:38am 22nd February 2013

As Mother’s Day approaches, NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) is asking people from the local area to think about new mothers and babies when they make a date to give blood.

Donated blood is vital for a wide variety of life-saving procedures in hospitals. In addition to accident and emergency situations, blood is often essential to new mothers during or after pregnancy. Premature babies may often need a blood transfusion as well, to replace the blood that is taken for essential testing as premature babies do not make many new blood cells in the first few weeks after birth.

NHS Blood and Transplant’s Lead Donor Relations Manager for Yorkshire and the North, Donna Batty, said:

“During this month we would like people to think about not only their own mother, but also the mothers and families they can help with their blood donation. As one donation can help three adults or seven babies, donors really can make a difference and help to save a life. We have made it through the winter months due to the dedication of our existing blood donors, but the need for blood doesn’t stop and we still need donors to come forward throughout the year.”

Anyone aged between 17-65, weighing more than 50 kg (7st 12lbs) and in general good health could potentially start saving lives by becoming a blood donor. There is no upper age limit for donors who have donated in the last two years.
