Call for blood donations before Chinese New Year

Call for blood donations before Chinese New Year


The Hong Kong Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service (BTS) today (January 20) appealed to members of the public to donate blood before Chinese New Year and to make prior appointment so as to prevent crowd gathering and long waiting time. As blood collection continues to drop amid the cold weather and the epidemic, blood inventories have depleted to a very low level and have to be duly replenished to maintain a stable blood supply for clinical transfusion to patients.


As a token of thanks, every blood donor who donates successfully at donor centres and the blood donation vehicle will receive a set of red packet pouch set (see annex), while stocks last.


BTS welcomes members of the public to make appointment for blood donation by calling the BTS’ donor centres, on-line booking at BTS website or via the “HK Blood” mobile apps. For details, please visit
