Our purpose is to save and improve lives. Our ambition is to be the best organisation of our type in the world.
NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) is a Special Health Authority, dedicated to saving and improving lives through the wide range of services we provide to the NHS.
We were formed in October 2005 from the merger of the National Blood Service and UK Transplant.
We are grateful to our donors who generously provide the donations vital to so many patients. We are proud to support and enable altruistic donation in the UK.
A single thread unites and connects everyone at NHSBT – our vital role in making sure the precious altruistic donations we receive from the public continue to save and improve as many lives as possible.
We do this by focusing on our key values: Caring, Expert and Quality. These values cut through everything we do and shape how we work together, and with others, to achieve our ambition and deliver our purpose.
