Blood supplies running low

PHUKET CITY: Stocks of O-type blood – both negative and positive – on the island have dropped to alarming levels, prompting Somchay Chodchasiri, President of the Phuket Blood Donor Club, based at Vachira Phuket Hospital, to put out an urgent call for more donors.

“We have nearly run out of supplies in Phuket,” he told the Gazette today. “Operations are sometimes cancelled if stocks are too low, but we cannot predict what emergencies may occur.”

K. Somchay invited anyone – Thais and foreigners, residents and tourists – to donate.

“You could save someone’s life,” he said.
