On Wednesday April 29th, 2020, the Blood Bank at the Princess Margaret will stage a national blood drive at the Thomas A. Robinson National Stadium. This event is being staged as the country has reached a critically low level of blood supply. The objective of the drive is to collect at least one hundred (100) units of blood to meet the already growing demand. Blood donations will begin at 8am am until 5pm in the entrance lobby of the National Stadium. Pre-registration and appointments are required to donate.

Persons can register to donate blood by using the link: https://forms.gle/MFrFiDKsnpuU6KQW9 and completing the simple registration form. Persons can also email the PMH Blood Bank at: pmhbloodbank@gmail.com to register or click on the QR code, on the official flyer.

Once registered, donors will be given an appointment time to make their blood donation at the National Stadium. Persons making inquiries can also call the PMH Blood Bank at 502-7822 or 322-8077. Donors are asked to eat at least 30 minutes before donating blood and to rest for at least ten minutes after making their donation. The Blood Bank will do pre-screening for donors to ensure that you are healthy enough to make a blood donation. Do not attempt to donate blood if you are coughing, have a fever or are having difficulty breathing. The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) and Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) wishes to extend a special thanks to our corporate sponsors who have been enlisted as part of the National Blood Drive, including the Friends of the Blood Bank, Aliv, Commonwealth Brewery, Colina Insurance and the Sports Authority and National Stadium.
