Industrial Action affecting New Zealand Blood Service - 31st May and 4th June 2024


NZBS are planning industrial action this Friday and next Tuesday. This will impact planned care (procedures and planned transfusions). We will have access to urgent and acute transfusion products – however planned infusions will be moved outside of period of industrial action – which, pending product usage over long weekend, may also impact next week.
