Are we to lose our blood supply now?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. This from the Grundian:,,1886394,00.html

    Du-Lai, how would this affect us?
  2. The NBS is already under great strain and this stupid idea would put it under even more strain! I cannot seriously believe they are thinking about this but this bunch of idiots seems to come up with more idiotic ideas by the day!

    This may well have an impact upon the supply but it is totally dependent on the outcome of the changes and who supplies us and from where. I really can't say until we see what happens!

    Problems at present are due to locations of the NBS centres and supplying isolated hospitals, overworked centres trying to get blood screened and released for use and lack of donors. Having "super centres" will not work, much the same as "super hospitals", too big, too much work and under invested!

    All in all, a cost cutting exercise only!!!!
  3. What aboud the Blood Supply to our deployed Medical facilities :?:
  4. Having heard first hand about this from a man in the know (thanks :wink: ), the impact should be minimal if any. The only difference is to the jobs of the BMSs/nurses/doctors working for the NBS
  5. Yippee for the man in the know :D and his tea boy !!!!!!!!! :wink:
  6. But we love you both :twisted:
