Transfusion Science and Medicine Training

24 February 2022


  • The Bloody History of Transfusion animation (length 15 minutes) is new and describes the history of blood transfusion from 200 BC to the present day.
  • It is 2 years since we launched our Blood Centre tour (please note this is now its new address if you've previously bookmarked it). 

The animation has a lift menu so you can move around the floors visiting each department, following the journey of a donation from when it arrives at a centre, as it progresses through testing and processing, and is finally distributed to hospitals. 

You'll gain an overview of our organisation, an insight into the workings of our laboratories and learn about the functions of a blood centre.

Both animations are on our Supplementary Learning page.
