Important News Update – Blood Bags

Early 2024, Dr. Paul Hancock of Manx Roadracing Medical Services approached The Rob Vine Fund, to assist in a new blood transfusion service to be introduced for TT 2024. After much preparation and planning the equipment was purchased by the Rob Vine Fund, for use during TT and beyond. This equipment is carried in the 2 rescue helicopters and 3 medical response cars. 

This investment by the Rob Vine Fund, of £13,000 has purchased all the necessary equipment to provide the service.  

The equipment was used almost at once for a critically unwell patient who received a pre-hospital blood transfusion on scene – which we believe was a first in the Isle of Man.

Donations to The Rob Vine Fund are vital as without your continuing support we would not be able to provide such state of the art medical equipment as this. 

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT
