Dear NHS Blood and Transplant,

My request is as follows:

During the 1970s & 1980s was whole blood imported from the USA?

During the 1970s & 1980s which American armed forces bases used US Troops to donate blood?

Why was US Whole Blood donations in the UK labelled as being from US donors?

Yours faithfully,

Sean Cavens
