    Default URGENT! Are you B+ blood group?

    A British expat has to have an emergency operation tomorrow morning at the new Centro Medico Cabarete hospital in Sosua and is likely to need more blood than is available locally. If you are B positive and able to call at the hospital tomorrow morning to 'give blood', please just call in or contact me for more info. Let's hope she doesn't need too much but better to be safe than sorry. Our thoughts and best wishes are with her x

    i hope she pulls through...
    just a word to all expats with rare blood type - in santiago and santo domingo there are hospitals/clinics that can store your own blood. you can come, donate, pay and your blood will be stored for your use. saves a lot of trouble for the future.

    O+ should be good too. That is the universal donor type.

    There are a number of O+ donors lined up but the hospital would prefer to have sufficient B+ if possible so I understand.

    2) Your blood group
    3) Your telephone number
    4) The area you live in

    I do not require any other personal details and the above details will be passed directly to the hospital

    If you prefer, pop in yourself and register

    Thanks

    The operation this morning was a success - a great big thank you to all the donors that came forward and made it possible.
