are now available

27 April 2023

We've updated the National Blood Transfusion Committee (NBTC) shortage plans for red cells and platelets, along with the Emergency Blood Management Arrangements (EBMA) checklist, following learning from the recent shortage and the feedback we received from hospitals. 

We encourage you to review the new versions and update your EBMA.
