                As a blood transfusion service deals with different functions related to donors and patients, it is imperative to keep in mind the safety of both donors and recipients. The blood transfusion service has to be planned and organized in such a way that it fulfils its ideal aims and objectives i.e.

   
Recruitment of blood donors - voluntary & replacement.
    Care of donor, donated unit and the recipient.
    Maintain adequate blood stock.
    Provide clinically effective blood components.
    Optimal use of available blood at any time any where.

                In India, blood transfusion services are mostly hospital-based. In a hospital-based blood transfusion service, few hospitals runs their own blood collection programmes with or without central regulation. This system utilizes existing institutions and does not require creation of separate blood transfusion centers or blood banks for needy persons at the time of emergency and the organization of voluntary blood donation. Blood donation in hospital-based system is usually unsatisfactory. 

                Replacement donors are usually friends and family members of the patient and are under pressure to donate blood. Whereas a voluntary donor system is far more satisfactory as there is no compulsion and the donor is motivated to donate blood. Different aspects of a blood transfusion service that need organization are to

Utilization of space for a blood transfusion centre / blood bank service.
Requirement of paramedical staff.
Procurement, standardization and maintenance of equipment, reagents.
Donor recruitment and motivation programme.
Autologous donor programme.
Donor blood collection.
Laboratory procedures
:
         
  1. serological techniques.
          2. screening for transfusion - transmitted diseases.

Continuing education, training and teaching for medical, technical, nursing and other paramedical staff as well as general public about voluntary donation.

  Formulation of transfusion committee and conducting medical audits.
