Gowing calls for blood donations
Macra president Michael Gowing has called on members to replenish falling blood supplies by donating blood.
The appeal comes in light of a warning from the Irish Blood Transfusion Service that it may not be able to meet hospital demand because the weather has hit attendance at its blood donation clinics.
A list of clinics is available at www.giveblood.ie
