There is currently a higher demand than usual for blood transfusions, due to the significant number of scheduled operations, the National Blood Transfusion Service has said.
Therefore, faced with this extra demand, the Service is calling on members of the public to donate blood this Sunday, the 12th of November, during a session taking place at the Gozo General Hospital.
Donations can be made 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.
