New Blood Centre for 2020
A world class Blood Centre for Leeds and Sheffield
In 2020 we will open a brand new, state of the art centre in Barnsley, consolidating our Leeds and Sheffield centres to serve hospitals throughout Yorkshire and the East Midlands.
The move supports the delivery of our strategic objectives and will provide world class services to our customers who have been generous with their time and involved in the journey so far. We want this involvement to continue so we make the new centre a success, together.
We will create a first class laboratory and training space, and develop advanced cell therapies.
The purpose-built centre will be flexible, efficient and provide scope for future expansion. It will be our second largest stock holding unit, offering a wider availability of components, benefitting the region. See the site plan (PDF).
Located near junction 37 of the M1, the site has excellent infrastructure links and is served well by public transport.
Teams relocating include:
- Hospital Services
- Cellular and Molecular Therapies
- Tissue Services
- Hospital Customer Service
- Clinical consultants
We welcome you on board as part of the development and will be working closely with hospital colleagues throughout the transition. To become involved, or if you would like more information please contact your Customer Service Manager or email Chris Gallagher, firstname.lastname@example.org, our lead Customer Service Manager for the project.
