Blood Transfusion Service

Blood Transfusion Service

A UK service established in 1946 that provided safe blood components for transfusion until 1996, when the National Blood Service was formed to service all the hospitals in England and North Wales. This in turn merged with UK Transplant in 2005 to create NHS Blood and Transplant, a special health authority and so-called arm’s length body.
