§ 42. Major Kimball
asked the Minister of Health whether he is able to make any statement about the future of the blood transfusion services organised during the war in connection with the emergency hospital scheme.
§ Mr. Willink
Yes, Sir. Although demands have naturally fallen with the end of the German war, the emergency blood transfusion service must be kept in being for some time to meet the needs of the Service and civilian patients for whom it is being used. When the emergency is over, it is intended to provide a blood transfusion service on a permanent basis; and any necessary changes in organisation consequent upon the transition from war to peace are now being considered in detail.
