At the 2019 NIPSA Annual Conference the following motion was carried:
"Motion No 76
Conference commends the work of the Northern Ireland Blood Transfusion Service (NIBTS) and the vital work that blood donation plays in helping to save lives across the world.
Conference calls on the incoming General Council to support the work of the Northern Ireland Blood Transfusion Service (NIBTS) and to encourage members who are able to do so to register and donate blood, by advertising and promoting blood donation in NIPSA News and through its social media postings.”
In furtherance of that motion NIPSA has met with the NIBTS and agreed a number of actions. One of these actions is to highlight the importance of giving blood and encouraging new donors.
Please circulate the attached leaflet amongst your membership and encourage them to become blood donors. Make this a New Year’s resolution.
