Approximately 1.5 million units of red blood cells were issued last year in the UK.

Around 20% of these are given in the perioperative period.

This survey is part of the planning for a randomised controlled trial of red cell transfusion strategy in major cancer surgery. 

We are very grateful for your time. Our survey should take around 5 minutes to complete.
