Detail

For earlier annual reviews, see the archived health protection website.

The NHSBT / PHE surveillance programme is a series of national schemes that monitors infection in:

  • blood, tissue and organ donors
  • transfusion recipients

Data from these schemes are used to assess and improve blood and tissue safety.

Errata for the safe supplies 2013 annual review and supplementary data:

The number of donors or donations tested were adjusted in the rate calculations although patterns remain largely the same.

  • Reflecting on the population, 2013 annual review:

    • blood donor surveillance chapter, figure 1.2 estimated rate of viral infections by donor type gender and age group show slightly higher rates
  • Supplementary data tables and figures, 2013:

    • tables 1.1-1.5 cumulative (all years) rates of markers are now lower in most cases
    • figures 1.8-1.11 rates of markers in blood donors by donor type and gender show lower rates in repeat donors
    • figure 1.13 seroconversion rates for HBsAg, anti-HCV, and anti-HIV are now lower
