What's your blood type? In this episode we hear about blood from Dr Shane Grimsley, a Clinical Scientist in the International Blood Group Reference Laboratory at NHS Blood and Transplant. We talked on blood donation, blood types and hear more about specific work going on to try and improve blood matching for individuals living with Sickle Cell disorder, some of whom undergo routine blood transfusions as part of their care.
