2. Staffing and governance

BloodMove is managed and facilitated by a Project Team which consists of:

  • Medical Scientist Lead
  • Nurse Management Facilitator Lead
  • Regional Cluster BloodSafe Clinical Nurses (x10)
  • Site Blood Contact Nurses (each site)

Currently, each of the Regional Cluster BloodSafe Clinical Nurses looks after a regional cluster comprising between five (5) and eight (8) hospitals.  Their role is to assist sites to manage blood related issues; including conducting audits and assessing inventories in hospitals within their region.  This is further supported at each site through a Site Blood Contact Nurse; their role is to ensure site compliance with blood related policies and procedures.  This process is overseen by the BloodMove Leads at a State level.

BloodMove reports to the CHSA Transfusion Committee which consists of representation from Regional and Metropolitan Medical, Nursing, Transfusion Laboratory Managers, the Blood Service and SA Health.
