What we do

We supply blood, tissues and cells to NHSScotland, ensuring they're available when needed throughout the country.

Our specialist diagnostic and treatment services ensure matched blood and platelets are available for patients across Scotland 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

We also provide training and support for colleagues across NHSScotland.
