"Waited hours for blood to arrive at Rotherham"

I was treated on Sitwell Ward at Rotherham District General with a blood transfusion due to chemo for metastatic prostate cancer. I was not happy that I had to be in for 8am to have blood taken for a cross-match and cannula fitted before 10am. However, the blood did not arrive until 4pm, I could have stayed at home and gone in at 12noon!
The staff on Sitwell ward need to be thanked though.
