  • Donor (and recipient) counselling within the Transfusion Service in the UK has grown in volume and complexity over the last 10 years. The addition of new tests for donated blood and the growth of bone marrow transplantation have increased the demands on counselling staff. New initiatives, such as the HCV look‐back programme, have required an extension of the skills and knowledge of staff involved in counselling.
