Nurse racks up century of blood units

  • Comment

A nurse at Doncaster Royal Infirmary is celebrating after making a very special donation.

Carol Rawson, from Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, gave her 100th unit of O+ blood to NHS Blood and Transplant earlier this month.

She has been donating since 1975 and now attends three donor sessions every year.

Ms Rawson, who has trained and worked at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals for over 40 years, said: “I’ve worked as a nurse in coronary care, intensive care and in theatre recovery, so I’m well aware of the importance of donating blood for use in emergency situations.

“I’m very passionate about giving my own blood and I want to encourage others to do so,” she said.
