flower Fast Facts: Do You Know flower


The Centre for Transfusion Medicine of the Health Sciences Authority supplies blood to all the hospitals in Singapore.

Every hour of the day, 8 units of blood are consumed.

Multiply those 8 units by hours in a day and the total yearly consumption becomes enormous. In fact, it amounts to about 64 000 units a year.

All donors are community volunteers, giving blood out of concern for those in need. No donor is paid for his or her donation.

Likewise, the patients receiving blood transfusions do not pay for the blood.

A processing fee, determined by the Ministry of Health, is charged on each unit of blood or component for the processing, testing and storage services provided.

Giving blood is entirely safe.

The health of each potential donor is carefully assessed by our attending doctor or nurse before donation.

It is impossible to catch any disease by donating blood as the equipment used is entirely disposable ie., it is used only once and discarded.

The average adult has 4 - 5 litres of blood. At each donation, only 450 ml of blood is drawn. This is about one-tenth of the total volume of blood in the body.

The volume donated will be replaced in 72 hours. Giving blood will have no harm to your body and will not weaken your immune system.

We need more ladies to come forward as blood donors. Women form only 30% of our donor panel.

Blood donation does not cause any weight gain. Our bodies only replace the blood donated - they do not overcompensate and produce excess blood or fat.

Please note that if you intend to get your family to donate blood with you, donars between the ages of 16 to 18 require parental consent.

The form can be downloaded HERE.
