Blood Donation Clinic Visits Thurles

Please Give Blood

Please Give Blood

The Irish Blood Transfusion Service (IBTC) will visit Thurles on four separate dates during the coming week.

These visits will take place on the following dates shown hereunder:

When: Monday 23rd, Tuesday 24th, Wednesday 25th and Thursday 26th June, 2014.

Where: The Dome, Semple Stadium, Thurles, Co.Tipperary.

Clinic Times: Monday 23rd – 2:00 pm through to 5:00 pm, (afternoon clinic)
Monday 23rd, Tuesday 24th, Wednesday 25th & Thursday 26th June – opening times will be 6:00pm through to 9:00pm, (evening clinics).

Keep in mind that one unit of blood lasts for just 35 days, while some blood packs for new born babies or cancer treatment, only lasts for 5 days. There is no substitute for human blood and the IBTS supplies 71 of our hospitals here in Ireland with blood and blood products 365 days a year.

Never given blood before?  Why not give it a try – remember just one car accident victim may require up to 30 units of blood, a bleeding ulcer could require anything between 3 to 30 units of blood and a coronary artery bypass may use between 1 to 5 units of blood.

The life you may save could be your own.
