What We Do

Transfusion Practitioners


Welcome to the BBTS Transfusion Practitioner page. 

This group aims to raise the profile of Transfusion Practitioners (TPs). Many hospitals, or even groups of hospitals, have only one TP in their area, meaning that you can feel isolated and disconnected from your peers. 

The BBTS TP group aims to address this by encouraging collaboration and the exchange of ideas between fellow professionals through a network of contacts and events including organising a Speed Meeting Event and Transfusion Practitioner Symposium at the BBTS Annual Conference.
