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 from all the UK countries. To facilitate this, an MS Teams group is being set up which will provide a platform for discussion and information sharing –if you are wish to be added to this group please contact the relevant committee member for your region/country.
