In November 2016, the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service will start to move to its new national headquarters at Heriot-Watt University Research Park.
The National Centre will deliver a first rate service in the processing, testing, supply, research and development of blood and human donor tissues and cells. Due to fully open in 2017, it will bring several core activities of the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service into one purpose built site.
Blood donations from across Scotland will be sent here for processing, testing and manufacturing before being transported to where they are needed for patients.
We are currently appealing to our staff, donors and members of the public to get take part in naming this new centre. We want to hear from you if you have any suggestions about what to call our new HQ. We will then draw up a shortlist of names before asking staff, donors and members of the public to vote for their favourite.
Our current options include:
Fala Alba - which means 'Blood Scotland' in Gaelic
Copeland House, after Jack Copeland, the founder of the blood transfusion service in Scotland
Simply SNBTS HQ
Suggestions can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 8th April.
