Blood Health Plan

The Blood Health Plan (BHP) has been developed to set the direction of optimising blood health and transfusion practice in Wales. Based on the principles of Patient Blood Management (PBM), the BHP defines three core strategic aims: 

  • Supporting individuals to manage their health and wellbeing, avoiding unnecessary intervention 
  • Use evidence and data to inform planning, improve practice and reduce variability 
  • Place safety and quality at the core of care reducing inappropriate use and supporting innovation 

Implementation of these strategic aims will allow us to develop a scheduled system of patient care within transfusion with safety and quality at its core. These aims draw on the principles of Future Generations Act 2015, Prudent Healthcare and Patient Blood Management – to deliver an integrated transfusion strategy for Wales.
