PHUKET: As the Christmas and New Year festive season draws closer, Phuket’s residents are being asked to donate blood to ensure an adequate supply is available for hospitals to deal with emergencies.

The Phuket Regional Blood Center (PRBC) mobile donation clinic will be out and about during December to collect blood donations from the public.

“We need all blood types, but we especially want those with Rhesus-negative (Rh-) blood groups to step forward. We just don’t have enough Rh- blood,” said Pornthip Rattajak, Acting Chief of Phuket Regional Blood Center.

“We would like to invite all members of the public to come and donate blood,” she said.

The mobile donation clinic is PRBC’s chief method of maintaining adequate blood supplies for hospitals, not only in Phuket, but also Phang Nga, Krabi, Trang, Satun and Ranong.

PRBC mobile clinics are scheduled to be held at the following locations this month:

December 11, 1pm to 4pm:
Royal Phuket Yacht Club Hotel
The Kee Resort Patong

December 17, 1pm to 5pm:
Bangkok Phuket Hospital

December 19, midday to 6pm:
Central Festival Phuket (Banking zone)

December 28, 10am to 3pm:
Duangjit Resort Phuket in Kathu
Donations can also be made at the PRBC at Saphan Hin.
