Mobile Blood Donation Unit

 
 
 
The Blood Donation Mobile Unit visits various localities and places of work during the year. This facilitates and encourages recruitment of new blood donors, especially those who have limited free time. This mobile unit collects more than 3000 units of blood per year and has become an important source of blood collection. When the Blood Donation Mobile Unit visits a town or villages we call this event a BLOOD DRIVE.
 
There are some criteria to be met before a blood drive can be organised. These are:
Identify a contact person, normally the person organizing the event prepare a list of about 30 persons who are ready to donate blood, and encourages new. Keep in contact with the person on the list to remind them of the event.
 
Those organisers or employers who do not succeed to meet the above criteria, but have a small number of donors who would like to donate, can still help by sending the group to the blood donation centre at G'Mangia. For further information you can call on 79307307 or 22066209 or e-mail us on customercare.nbts@gov.mt
 
As the Mobile Unit is 80 feet long with stairs on the side. There should be adequate space for parking. Sloping areas are no​t appropriate.
 
Here are some ideas and material that can be used when organizing a blood drive.
