CBS Maintains Blood Will Always Be Available

Canadian blood services maintains it would be dangerous for the province to create their own blood agency and leave the national system.
If the Alward government decides to go it alone they would have to supply it solely through the province's 13,000 donors.
Amanda Cullen tells CHSJ News both the Regional hospital and CBS always maintain a 3 to 4 day supply of blood.

She says in the case of a trauma, doctors are not coming down the hill looking for blood adding they have it in their blood bank.
She adds if they need more, they place orders and CBS goes about replenishing their supply.

Cullen suggest donors keep giving blood encouraging them to not let politics get in the way of giving a life saving gift to hospital patients.
