The New Zealand Blood Service (NZBS) says seasonal high rates of coughs, colds and influenza and the one-week stand-down period after illness have resulted in significantly less donations over winter. Some Blood Donor Centres have extended their opening hours and increased appointment slots to accommodate more donors. “We are experiencing high numbers of regular donors being too sick to donate, which has been compounded by unusually high usage of O positive blood in hospitals,” says Asuka Burge, a NZBS spokesperson. “We are asking people to start the donation process by using our appointment booking service to help us manage our stock levels during this public appeal. Also, if you’re unsure of your blood type, give us a call to find out if you have donated before. “If you are a new donor, once you have donated you’ll get a blood donor card with your blood type on it. If you cannot donate, you can help by encouraging your friends and family to instead, and by pledging your support via the NZBS website or Facebook page. “NZBS operates on a very tight ‘right donor, right time, right type, right place’ policy to manage blood stock levels.” To book an appointment to donate blood and for more details free phone 0800- 4483-25663, or visit www.nzblood.co.nz.
