|Email item||Print item||
Following several weeks of low numbers of blood donations in Gozo, the National Blood Transfusion Service said, that there are now strong indications that this has been reversed.
The Service added that it has carried out a number of promotional interventions, as well as working in close collaboration with several entities in Gozo to improve the situation.
In response to this positive trend, the National Blood Transfusion Service has decided to hold an additional session today, Sunday, the 18th of November between 8am and 1pm – last registration at 1pm, as well as this coming Tuesday, the 20th, between 1pm and 5pm – last registration at 5pm.
The service is calling on those Gozitans who are fit enough to do so, to give blood at the District Health Centre in Xewkija. The session will be 1:00pm to 5:00pm (last registration until 5:00pm).
The Centre is located in Triq tall- Hamrija, between the Primary School and the Bocci Club.
It is important to always take your Identity Card, or Driving License or Maltese Passport and to drink plenty of water beforehand.
The Service thanks everyone who intends to donate.
