Blood technology modernisation


Tech-changing. Life-saving. Career-making.

Join a tech transformation with real purpose.

Technology programmes don't get much more important than this.

The mission: to modernise the technology that underpins the UK blood supply chain to support the wider NHS and our donors and patients.

As you can imagine, the security and effectiveness of the blood supply chain can be the difference between life and death. The stakes could not be higher.

The project aims not just to bring things up to date, but to be a step ahead.
