“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.

The mobile blood-donation clinics throughout November will be held as follows:

Nov 12 – 10am to 3pm – Thalang Technical College;

Nov13 – 1pm to 3pm – Phuket Technical College;

Nov14 – 10am to 3pm – Kajonkiet Pattana School;

Nov16 – 10am to 3pm – SuperCheap (main store in Phuket);

Nov19 – 10am to 3pm – Kajonkiet International School;

Dive Supply Co., Ltd.

Nov 20 – 10am to 3pm – Sleep with Me Hotel Patong;

Nov 22 – 8.30am to 8pm – Vachira Phuket Hospital blood bank;

Nov 23 – 10am to 3pm – Deevana Patong Hotel;

Nov 26 – 10am to 3pm – Patong Orientala Spa;

The Phuket 'blood donation rules' are very strict. Leaving out many of us who would actually like to donate.  Can people with blood type O-negative do own blood donation to store for when they need it after accident or during operation?  If so, the Phuket hospitals should publish that. Have personal stock of the O-Negative blood persons. Not to difficult, right?
