Education and training

Blood component collection assessors programme (BCCAP)

The Blood Component Collection Assessors Programme (BCCAP) is our national education programme, delivered in all Scottish health boards.

BCCAP has been developed in response to meeting the Blood Safety Quality Regulations (2005). It consists of both theoretical and competency based learning objectives and updated in 2020 by the SNBTS TT education group.

Your local transfusion practitioner will support the training of BCCAP assessors to deliver the competency based programme locally. They will aslo be able to give you more information about BCCAP in your NHS Board.
