Three NHS trusts in East Anglia have are planning to install a new blood tracking technology from Olympus.

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, the James Paget University Hospitals NHS at Gorleston and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn, will take the Olympus BloodTrack Courier on all blood issue fridges. It will use barcoding to control and track the movement of blood products into and out of blood issue fridges and ensure that the right blood is given to the correct patient.
