Chaired by Council Member Dr Nelson Osaro the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee was founded in Autumn 2020 and officially established by BBTS Council in July 2021. The BBTS recognises the diversity and difference that exist within our Society and the people we represent including blood donors and patients. The Society is committed to meeting the needs of the diverse groups within the society. We shall continue to promote inclusive practices in our interactions with all our stakeholders in the society irrespective of their; age, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, mental or physical disability, race, religion/belief, sexual orientation and social economic status.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Mission Statement

We in the equality and diversity working group are committed to collaborating with the BBTS Council in continuing to promote inclusive practices and strategies in our interactions with all our stakeholders without any prejudices.

Should you wish to join the committee, or have any feedback, concerns, and improvement suggestions, please contact bbts@bbts.org.uk

Each committee is made up of BBTS members from a variety of backgrounds, job roles and specialisms, working together to steer the direction of the society. Committees report to BBTS Council and assist the BBTS office in delivering our objectives.

Can you make a difference?

Are you interested in helping to shape your society?

If so, we would like to offer you the chance to help us deliver our strategic plan by taking up a voluntary role in one of our committees. You will need to be a current BBTS member and have a commitment to the field of transfusion.

As a committee member you will help make a major contribution to the society and our community of transfusion professionals. In return, you are given access to unique opportunities to network, and influence the development of society research and activity. We would not be able to operate without the significant amount of time dedicated to us by committee members, their role is invaluable and ensures the smooth running of BBTS. Members from any specialism and professional level are encouraged to apply from new-comers taking their first steps into the profession to experienced stalwarts hoping to share their knowledge and experiences.
