NBTS Cluster System

National Blood Centre at Narahenpita, Colombo 05; is the operational head quarters for the entire Transfusion Service that has incorporated 96 blood banks into 19 Cluster Centres depending on their geographical distribution. Each Cluster Centre is headed by a Consultant Transfusion Physician of the Transfusion Service supervising the functions of the Cluster Centre and affiliated blood banks while coordinating with the National Blood Centre in making policy decisions and implementation of the same. 

Organized according to the WHO recommended Centrally Coordinated System and National requirements, NBTS has been able to provide quality assured blood and blood components required for the modern day medical treatments over the years.
