Description: "Blood Bank Open at Hospital" describes the opening of the Blood Bank at Gosford District Hospital in January 1967. The blood bank was opened prematurely to give much needed blood to a patient in the hospital. Sister Day, in charge of the service, speaks about the need for new donors. Currently 500 people in the shire are giving blood but 2,000 are needed. The blood bank replaces the mobile units that visited the shire twice a year. Every year one person in eighty require blood.
