Oman’s Central Blood Bank has called on donors to come forward and donate platelets, as patients in hospitals urgently require blood transfusions.
In a statement the Department of Blood Bank Services (DBBS) of the Central Blood Bank said platelet transfusion is important for patients with low platelet count, cancer patients, bone marrow transplant and liver transplant patients.
‘Please book your appointment to donate blood via WhatsApp at 94555648 or by calling 24591255 or 24594255,’ the statement added.
To book an appointment through WhatsApp, donors are requested to send their full name with family name, Civil ID number, type of donation (blood, platelet or plasma) and preferred date and time of donation.
