Electronic Despatch Note
The electronic dispatch note allows hospitals to access their delivery information via a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) message from NHSBT.
The message gives standard issue information on the donation number, the product, the blood group and the expiry date. The benefits include more efficient stock entry, reduced dependence on barcodes, improved reconciliation and improved audit trail of stock receipt. It also delivers valuable information to the hospital laboratory information system on confirmed and unconfirmed phenotypes.
