BHB Issue Urgent call for blood donations

Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) is calling for members of the public to donate blood, especially people with O positive blood. Please call 236-5067 to make an appointment.

Consultant Haematologist Dr Eyitayo Fakunle said: “Stocks of O positive blood in particular are currently lower than we want, and we are making an urgent plea to the community for people to become blood donors. Safe blood saves lives and improves health. It is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person.

“People can contact the Blood Donor Centre at (441) 236-5067, via WhatsApp at (441) 533-9553 or by email at Appointments are preferred, although walk-ins are accepted. Those who don’t know their blood type are still encouraged to contact the team.

“The Bermuda Blood Donor Centre is located at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital, and is open Monday through Thursday from 8:30am to 2:30pm and on Friday from 8:30am to 1pm.

“All of us in the Blood Donor Centre thank our community for your kind assistance in ensuring we can continue to save lives.”
