Blood Bank

Please go through the below mentioned basic guidelines for blood donation, regarding the criteria on who can be a donor. In addition to the below mentioned general guidelines, the blood bank at Heritage Hospital will carry out strict clinical screening before certifying a donor as fit for donation and accepting blood from the recipient party.
