The provincial government is open to establishing its own blood bank to cater to patients in remote areas in Bohol, according to Provincial Administrator Ae Damalerio.

Damalerio during the weekly “Kita ug ang Gobernador” program on Friday said that the government is ready to conduct a study on the intricate processes of building a blood bank.

There are many requirements in establishing a blood bank including a large fund for the acquisition of equipment, hiring of medical technologists and the facility’s maintenance, Damalerio said.

According to provincial health officer Dr. Reymoses Cabagnot, the Bohol government needs to have its own blood bank to cater to patients from far-flung areas in the province.

Cabagnot said that it would be ideal to have the blood bank in Talibon as the province is already running a hospital in the town, the Garcia Provincial Memorial Hospital.

Currently, only the Governor Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital has such as a facility but donated blood still have to go through stringent screening including those from the Philippine Red Cross. (R. Tutas)
