New Perth donor centre in time for blood stock boost

Monday 27th Jul 2015

The Lifeblood hopes the opening of the new Perth CBD Blood Donor Centre will help fill some of WA’s 2,600 empty appointments over the next two weeks.
The new donor centre officially opens at a time of seasonal and serious need for the Lifeblood, with over 900 appointments being cancelled every week nation-wide due to cold and Flu.
Up to 93,000 lives will be saved every year with the blood donated at the new Perth centre, including those like four-year-old Yaseen Manickum-Suleman, who received multiple blood transfusions after he was born prematurely at 23 weeks gestation.
Mr Manickum-Suleman joined the Hon Colin Barnett MLA, Premier of Western Australia, in officially opening the new $4 million centre in a special opening ceremony.
Lifeblood spokesperson Jessica Willet said the opening of the new centre comes in the nick of time to help combat the cold and flu season.
“With so many people cancelling appointments every week due to illness, we need to fill as many of the 2,600 empty appointments as possible to ensure we have enough blood for patients in need,” she said.
Ms Willet said with the new Perth centre’s more central location and state-of-the-art facilities, there was never a better time to roll up your sleeves. 
“The new Perth CBD Blood Donor Centre will collect 31,000 donations over the next 12 months, and as every donation helps to save as many as three lives, Perth donors will be helping improve the lives of more than 93,000 patients.
“An hour of your time can mean a lifetime to a young child, mother, grandfather or neighbour in need.”
The new Perth CBD Blood Donor Centre is located at Level 1, 140 William St Perth, having moved from 290 Wellington St. 
Important changes to the nation’s blood collection network are helping to create a more stable blood supply for the one in three Australians who will need donated blood or blood products in their lifetime.
Another new donor centre located in Midland will also open in 2015.
