Blood Clinic next week

The Blood Transfusion Service will hold a clinic in Kilcullen on Wednesday next, 17 June.

The times are 5pm-8.30pm, and the location is the Community Centre.

The IBTS is having difficulty meeting the demand for some 3,000 units of blood needed in the country's hospitals every week, and is appealing for a good response to the clinic.

"It is important that we all remember that patients always need our blood, and this need never stops regardless of what else is going on in the world," says the Service's Area Manager Miriam O'Neill.
