The Western Province Blood Transfusion Service (WPBTS) is proud to be celebrating its 80th anniversary. The Service was established on 24 October 1938 when the first meeting of the Cape Peninsula Blood Transfusion Service took place at the Groote Schuur Hospital.
The Western Province Blood Transfusion Service (WPBTS) needs the help of its regular blood donors to recruit new blood donors. With the “Bring-A-Buddy” campaign during September regular blood donors are encouraged to bring a friend, family member or colleague to donate blood with them.

Blood stocks in the Western Cape remain at a critical point as the Western Province Blood Transfusion Service (WPBTS) celebrates 80 years of service. WPBTS would therefore like to appeal to new and regular blood donors who meet the basic criteria to come and donate blood.
