Blood transfusions are sometimes necessary in order to boost a patient’s low haemoglobin levels, either because of blood lost during surgery, injury or disease, or because the patient’s body is not making enough blood.

A transfusion means that donated blood is added to your own blood through an intravenous drip into a vein in the arm. The London Clinic complies strictly with the UK National Patient Safety Agency regulations that stipulate that all staff who take part in delivering blood transfusions must have a competency in the area in which they practice. In fact, we place Transfusion Champions in all clinical areas and their role is to ensure that all nurses, especially those working in operating theatres, have a high degree of transfusion competency.

The UK is one of the safest countries in the world in which to receive a blood transfusion. The London Clinic is audited regularly by the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) and by Clinical Pathology Accreditation (UK) Ltd. This means that The London Clinic is accredited as safe to practice blood transfusions.

The London Clinic receives a daily delivery of blood for transfusions from the UK national centre, NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT). This blood, donated by UK volunteers, is rigorously tested.

We also participate in a blood stocks management scheme in order to reduce wastage. After all, blood is a precious commodity.
