Life Blood Newsletter – February 2022

Dear Life Blood Reader,

Welcome to this edition where we inform you about upcoming plans to implement ferritin testing for WCBS donors, the phenomenon of hookah pipe smoking being associated with secondary polycythaemia in whole blood donors, the importance of cross-match testing and why it takes time to safely issue blood products, and the indications for the use of blood from therapeutic phlebotomy donors. In addition to this, we provide you with feedback about the 2021 WCBS Customer Satisfaction Survey and particulars about the upcoming South African National Blood Transfusion Congress.

Please feel free to send us your comments, queries, or suggestions.

Best wishes for a successful 2022.

Yours sincerely,

Hayley Alie
Hospital Liaison Officer

Dr Caroline Hilton
Head – Medical Division
