To mark the occasion of the World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, which was celebrated on the 14th of October, the National Blood Transfusion Service has said that blood is also often needed for those patients who are receiving palliative care.
With this in mind, the Service is inviting members of the public to donate blood this Sunday, the 29th of October, during a session taking place at the Gozo General Hospital between 8:00am and 1:00pm, in the Outpatients Department. “If possible please also encourage others to attend and donate as well.”
The Service is reminding everyone that it is important to always take their Identity Card, or Driving License or Maltese Passport and to drink plenty of water beforehand.
