“We are happy accept blood of all groups, especially B and O (both Rh negative and Rh positive) because the available amounts of these two are smaller than the rest,” a representative of Vachira Phuket Hospital blood bank said.
The specialist specifically stressed the importance of having enough O- in the bank, as people with this blood group cannot receive blood of any other groups.
