It is an exciting time at the Welsh Blood Service!

The months of July, August and September have been really busy months for the All Wales Blood Service Programme (AWBS) and a lot has been achieved in a short space of time.

The AWBS Programme hosted a successful clinical stakeholder event at BCUHB in early July and had some really valuable feedback from clinicians, blood bank and pathology staff from across the health board area. They welcomed the Vision and the details of the service offering that was shared and provided some useful comments and ideas that can be incorporated.

The Programme Board met again and considered an early draft of the Blueprint document which describes the service and how it will be delivered. The Blueprint is currently going through the required governance pathways to gain final approval and this process will be completed by the end of 2014.
