Dear donors and blood donors

with effect from 29.9.2020 subscriptions of those interested in participating in the GENOM project will be carried out also at the Karlovo náměstí workplace, always on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 8:00 to 11:00. The consumption for the Zbraslav workplace remains unchanged, ie Monday - Thursday 7:00 - 10:00.

You can find more information under the tab Analysis of Czech genomes for teranism.

Dear donors and blood donors

at the end of this week on Thursday 20.8. and on Friday 21.8.2020 we expect a higher number of blood donors at our collection workplace in the VFN complex on Charles Square than usual. Therefore, we ask you for leniency, mutual consideration and patience in the event of a longer wait for collection. For those of you who have not yet donated blood, please consider changing the collection date if you have planned your first blood donation for these days.

In this context, I would like to remind you that our collection point in Zbraslav is also open for donors at the address: K Interně 640, Prague 5-Zbraslav.

I thank all existing blood donors and those who are still considering blood donation for their willingness to help ensure the treatment of patients. We really appreciate it.

Thanks to blood donors

Dear donors and blood donors

Thank you to everyone who comes in this very challenging time for us to donate blood. In recent weeks, we have been facing a critical shortage of transfusion products for the treatment of patients, and we are extremely pleased that you have responded positively to our repeated calls and come to donate.

We really appreciate your patience while waiting for collection, but unfortunately, due to space constraints, we are not able to increase the number of collection points. So if you have the opportunity, you can also visit our workplace in Zbraslav.

Thank you for your help, patience and willingness to help. You're great!

For the FTO team
