Call for O Negative Blood Donations

Bermuda Hospitals Board today is asking for O negative blood donors to donate on the Tuesday and Wednesday before Cup Match, to ensure blood supplies are available over the long holiday weekend. Donors are asked to call 236-5067 to make an appointment.

Dr Eyitayo Fakunle, Consultant Haematologist, comments: “We have a short donation week due to the Cup Match Holiday and a lot of people who regularly donate are on vacation. We need to ensure all types of blood are available over the long weekend, but we are in special need of O negative blood. While we hope everyone enjoys the four days safely, accidents can happen, and if your life needs saving by a blood donation we must ensure blood supplies are available. If you don’t know your blood type, but are willing to donate, please call the Blood Donor Centre as your blood donation is always welcome and new blood donors are always needed.”
