Training

The NHSBT Learning Delivery team provides knowledge-based training programmes in transfusion science and transfusion medicine. Programmes are delivered by learning delivery staff, senior scientists and clinicians from the NHSBT.

Programmes range from basic to advanced topics and are open to medical and scientific staff and healthcare workers. We also co-ordinate training of hospital staff in Transfusion Medicine, providing courses for trainees through to haematologists. 

Training is provided in general science (molecular biology, immunology, genetics, statistics and epidemiology) and in these specialties:

  • red cell immunohaematology
  • microbiology
  • stem cell biology
  • components development
  • histocompatibility and immunogenetics 
  • platelet and granulocyte immunology

Scientific, technical and clinical aspects are taught together and integrated where appropriate.

We can occasionally offer places on courses or work placements to health care professionals from other countries.
