The great British Blood sale.

Heads up for all blood donors – the next time you go to give blood the Blood Transfusion service may be owned by a private company.

I don’t know whether they intend to pay donors for their blood or whether they hope that people will still donate for free so that whoever wins the contract can sell your blood for even more profit than if the y have to pay you for it.

You can read more about this here on Dr Eoin Clarkes’ blog The Green Benches.

You will not be surprised to learn that the company that have been given the job of selling the transfusion service are themselves donors – they donate money to the conservatives!
