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
- Fax this form to your local blood centre
- Phone to confirm receipt. This phone call marks the start time of the delivery
- Please confirm details such as target delivery time during the call
In extraordinary circumstances the NHSBT 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 confirmatory telephone call there is a risk that these requests are not processed immediately.
