Access to www.blood-academy.com

The Site will aim to provide access on an uninterrupted basis. We cannot guarantee that access will not be restricted at times to allow for maintenance, repair or the introduction of new services. Where this occurs, all efforts will be made to limit the disruption caused. Subscription is provided on a unique and individual basis and is not transferable to others.

The Site has not been optimised for use via mobile devices and users wishing to do so should be aware that they may not experience the full functionality of the Site.



All content is fully anonymised and untraceable back to the source. Patient details have been altered to ensure full anonymity without compromising the educational value of the Site’s content.
