National Surveys

National Survey on the Use of O RhD Negative Blood (pdf 129 KB)

Critical Supplier Audits

In order to fulfil the requirements of Good Manufacturing Practice guidelines and ISO standards for a regular supplier audit, quality questionnaires were sent out to the critical suppliers identified by the joint North London & South Thames Transfusion Science TAG.

The collected responses, together with any additional evidence received, are reviewed by the TAG’s Quality Subgroup members and their findings are published on this website.

Note; Completed questionnaires are published on this website only if the supplier has given consent. However, the information is held by the TAG's Quality Subgroup and the NBTC's Administrator, and is available on request.

Suppliers who hold a recognised quality accreditation are marked as “Satisfactory Response” 

Suppliers who do not hold recognised quality accreditations are marked as “Company does not hold a quality accreditation” and the Blood Transfusion Laboratories who use their services/products should carry out local risk assessments if they wish to continue using them.

Suppliers who did not respond to the survey are marked as “No response received” and the Blood Transfusion Laboratories who use their services/products should carry out local risk assessments if they wish to continue using them.

If you have any other suppliers which you would like to be added to this information resource please contact your regional NTLM representative via your local Transfusion Laboratory Managers Group or e-mail Celina Bernstrom, NBTC Administrator

If you would like a copy of a suppler response not on the website please e-mail Celina Bernstrom, NBTC Administrator
