Request for Emergency Delivery
Emergency delivery process (during OBOS downtime)
The hospital blood transfusion laboratory must:
- Complete the relevant sections of the emergency component request form (WORD)
- Fax this form to your local blood centre
- Telephone to confirm receipt. This call marks the start time of the delivery
- Please confirm details such as target delivery time during the call
In extraordinary circumstances we will issue products without a fax, but hospitals must recognise that mistakes are possible where written confirmation of an order is not received.
Without the confirmation telephone call there is a risk that these requests are not processed immediately.
