NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) is a Special Health Authority, dedicated to saving and improving lives through the wide range of services we provide to the NHS.
Our challenge is to supply enough safe blood to hospitals in England and North Wales and tissues and solid organs to hospitals across the UK. And we can't do it alone. Each year our donors give around 2 million donations of blood and 3,500 organs, saving and transforming countless lives.
Our remit also extends beyond the vital task of safeguarding the blood supply and increasing the number of donated organs. The following pages provide a glimpse of the scope of our work, our donors, the patients we serve, and how you can be a part of saving lives through donation.
