Seeley encourages blood donation
Sinn Féin MLA Catherine Seeley has encouraged people to become blood donors.
The Sinn Féin Assembly health spokesperson said;
"Stocks of blood, particularly O- and A+ are currently running low according to the Blood Transfusion Service.
"Blood donors save lives everyday and it is important that there is an adequate stock of all blood types to meet the current need.
"I would encourage anyone who can give blood to look out for blood donation sessions in their local area and to donate.
"Even though Christmas has now passed people can still give a lifesaving gift to others by becoming a blood donor."
