Frankston Blood Donor Centre Reopens

Tuesday 18th Sep 2018

The Australian Red Cross Blood Service is thrilled to announce after nearly 18 months operating from a temporary location, the Frankston Blood Donor Centre has returned to 20 Davey Street this Monday 17 September. 

The reopened centre features new technology to make the pre-donation process even faster with touch-screen kiosks now available for plasma donors. 

Speaking about the rebuild, Donor Services Manager Sue Guthrie said the team were excited to welcome donors back to the centre and showcase their new facility. 

“It’s been a long time for our team and our very dedicated and patient donors,” Ms Guthrie said. 

“We’re thrilled to be returning to 20 Davey Street and can’t wait to show the community how we’ve not just rebuilt the old centre; we’ve made it one of the most advanced in the country.

“Our regular plasma donors will get to experience this technology first-hand through the use of new touch-screen kiosks.

“These kiosks will feature a shortened donor questionnaire making the pre-donation process faster for these donors. 

“Other process changes and an improved layout will help all donors make their donations even quicker.”

Additional improvements to the centre include: USB charging built-in to the donor couches, hi speed Wi-Fi allowing donors to stream their own content during their donation, and expanded opening hours providing donors more options when it comes to choosing a time to donate. 

“We’d really like to thank our amazing donors for continuing to support Australian patients by donating at our temporary location over the last 18 months. 

“Despite this upheaval the team were able to collect more than 20,000 blood and plasma donations from around 7,300 donors, demonstrating the community’s outstanding support for blood donation.”

While some processes are changing, somethings will stay the same. The same friendly staff will be on hand to assist donors and answer any questions they have, and the local community’s blood donations will still be life-giving.

The team at the Frankston Blood Donor Centre look forward to welcoming new and returning donors to 20 Davey Street from 17 September.
