O positive blood donors needed

Wednesday 9 November 2022: Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) is asking people with O positive blood to donate. Donors and potential donors are asked to call 236-5067 to make an appointment.

BHB Consultant Haematologist Dr Eyitayo Fakunle said: “We are in need of O positive blood due to a recent emergency that made our stock lower than we would have anticipated.”

Appointments are preferred, although walk-ins are accepted.

The Bermuda Blood Donor Centre is located at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital and is open Monday through Thursday from 8:30am to 2:30pm, and on Friday from 8:30am to 1pm. It is closed on weekends and public holidays, including this Friday 11 November.
