There was another good response in Gozo on Sunday, to the call for blood by the National Blood Transfusion Service
The Service thanks everyone who donated blood at the Gozo General Hospital, with once again over 60 people people turning out for the session.
However, the Service said they need to achieve around 50 blood donations a day to continue to provide enough blood for those in need and the blood reserve is decreasing.
Another session will therefore be held next Tuesday, the 12th of September, between 1.00pm and 5.00pm, when blood can be donated at the Outpatients Department of the Gozo General Hospital, Please also encourage others to donate if possible.
It is important that before you go to donate blood to drink a substantial amount of water, and take your ID card, driving license or Maltese passport.
The Service thanks in advance everyone who intends to donate.
