City Doc Supports The Province Going It Alone On Blood

A City doctor thinks they are many alternatives to Canadian Blood Services and the province should explore going it alone by creating their own agency.
CBS is set to move their distribution facility to Dartmouth in less than two years, a move that Dr. Andrea Garland says will compromise safety.
Garland tells CHSJ News after 2013, the Millidgeville location will be a storage site.

She says one significant trauma, a couple of car accidents, those are the unknowns that can push things one way or the other.

Garland maintains when you have the production centre in your province, you can get people in to donate blood to fill the needs of a trauma.
