HC Deb 07 May 1996 vol 277 c34W
Mr. Hall

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what measures have been introduced in the last year to ensure potential blood donors can be informed of blood giving sessions in their area. [27974]

Mr. Horam

This is a matter for the National Blood Authority, which is working towards the implementation of the targets for improved services to blood donors outlined in the interim donor's charter issued last November. Regular donors are notified of their local donor sessions some two weeks in advance. A range of measures is used to publicise donor sessions, including local posters and media advertising.
