Ten years of transfusion practitioners and better blood transfusion in Scotland.

Author information

Fife Area Laboratory, Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy.


After the Department of Health's Better Blood Transfusion recommendations ( DH 2002 ) ten years ago, a network of 18 transfusion practitioners supported by a central team in the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service was established. This article discusses the impact that transfusion practitioners in Scotland have had in driving local transfusion teams to promote safe and effective transfusion practice across Scotland. They have done this through education, audit and raising awareness of current guidelines.
