THE BLOOD Donation Centre of the Murcia region has launched an urgent appeal for blood donors.
It’s vital that stocks are replenished and the service is particularly looking for people whose blood group is either O-Negative or B-Negative.
The regular donations are coordinated via the regional website at murciasalud.es and registered donors are presently receiving text messages requesting them to go to their normal centres of blood donations as soon as possible.
The regional Blood Donation Centre is located next to the Hospital Reina Sofia in Murcia and open from 8.30am to 8.30pm Monday to Friday.
There are also other permanent centres open for blood donations at the following locations in the Murcia region:
Hospital Santa María del Rosell, Avenida Alfonso XIII, 61, Cartagena, open for blood extractions Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8.30am to 2pm: Wednesday from 3pm to 9pm, and the second Saturday of each month.
Hospital Virgen del Castillo in Yecla. Blood donors welcome on the final Thursday of each month.
Santa Rosa de Lima de Lorca. Donations take place in the outpatient clinic on the first and third Thursday of each month.
