O- donors we need your help!
Due to lower than normal stock levels of O- blood, New Zealand Blood Service is asking eligible O- blood donors to book an appointment to donate. “Very occasionally we find ourselves in a position where demand for a particular blood group has been higher than we had anticipated”, says Asuka Burge, National Manager Marketing and Communications for New Zealand Blood Service. “To help us recover our stock levels of O- we need eligible donors to donate over the coming days.”
Every day, 80 New Zealanders need blood or blood products and there is no alternative for these patients in need – blood donors save lives.
