Featured in the Encouraging Blood Donation gallery.
Maintaining adequate supplies of blood was always a continuing challenge for the Blood Transfusion Service, the body responsible for collecting and supplying blood to the NHS. Following a name change to the National Blood Service, there was a greater effort to use mobile donation clinics to encourage people to give blood during well-advertised and short-lived blood drives. This image show one such mobile clinic that went into communities to make giving blood quick and easy for donors. It also shows a small side table holding a number of posters and leaflets that were used to recruit new blood donors and encourage existing ones to continue donating.
