CONGRESS 2023 - Managing blood stocks in a shortage

In 2022 the unthinkable happened - NHSBT was forced to declare an Amber Alert for red cells in England. But does that tell the whole story? This presentation will briefly examine the build-up to the shortage declaration but also consider its impact, provide evidence of the response within hospitals and consider the opportunities for future change in practices.
