Nineteen members of NHS Wales staff from each of the hospitals that the Welsh Blood Service supplies blood to have been flag-bearers at the Wales V Italy game at the Principality Stadium on 19th March 2016.
As the Welsh Blood Service will be covering the whole of Wales for the first ever time this May, the hospitals that we distribute blood to will be growing from sixteen to nineteen.
This means that the service will be responsible for collecting blood and blood components from generous donors throughout Wales and processing, testing and storing, before distributing to nineteen hospitals throughout the country.
What better way to celebrate this huge milestone then by staff who have gone the extra mile within the field of blood transfusion coming together to represent our service and Wales!
It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, and they did us proud!
