Please contact our National Frozen Blood Bank (NFBB) to discuss returning unused “ultra rare” red cell units.

We can potentially look to re-allocate them

21 December 2021

In the event of these units for very rare phenotypes (issued with an ultra rare component label) not being transfused we can potentially look to re-allocate them for use in the Reagents Laboratory.   

Please contact the NFBB to discuss returning the units on 0151 268 7170 or
