"There is acute shortage of blood at the Sahlgrenska university hospital in Gothenburg, writes GP."
"We need blood from all blood groups, but especially blodgrupperna A negative and 0 negative, needs to be filled," says Jan Holgersson, the hospital's director of transfusion medicine, told the newspaper."
"the Reason for the shortage is that the blood decreases during the easter weekend and a lot of pressure on the health service in the past."
"the Organization Geblod have therefore sent out a call for more residents to give blood."
"the Risk to any patient without a blood is however small."
"– One unit of red cells costs a little different across the country, but you will normally pay slightly more than sek 1 000 per unit. It's really just a cost to produce blodkomponenten and no one makes money on it, " says Jan Holgersson."
