Since these blood transfusion competencies were developed the British Committee for Standards in Haematology guidelines have been updated.
The competencies on this website are still considered to promote safe practice.
Any revisions to the competencies and supporting competency assessment frameworks will be led by Skills for Health (England) and the Welsh Blood Service Better Blood Transfusion team (Wales.)
You should review the content on these websites as applicable to ensure you are using the most up to date versions of the competencies.
Further advice on the competencies in Wales is available from Karen Shreeve at the Welsh Blood Service.
