Hospital begins month long blood drive

| 25/11/2014

(CNS): The Cayman Islands Hospital Blood Bank, with the support of the Cayman Blood Donor Service has begun a blood drive which will run until 24 December. Officials said that one pint of blood can save up to three lives as they urged people to help increase the hospital supply. People can walk-in to give blood and the blood bank will be open Monday through Friday from 7:00am until 6:30pm and on Saturdays from 9:00am until 5:00pm. The blood team will also be in the hospital atrium this coming Saturday 29 November.

Although the appeal is being made to the wider community the hospital does not accept blood from anyone who lived in the UK of more than three months from 1980 to 1996 as a result of the possible transmission of CJD (known as 'mad cow's disease').

Donors who wish to schedule an appointment can call 244-2674
