Dear Life Blood Reader,
Welcome to this edition of Life Blood where we provide findings about the recent seroprevalence study among WCBS staff, give a summary of the 2020 South African Haemovigilance Report, discuss how new blood group systems are classified and recognised, provide feedback about the introduction of X-ray blood irradiators, and highlight World Patient Safety Day and our role in maternal and newborn safety.
Please feel free to send us your comments, queries or suggestions.
Hospital Liaison Officer
