    Welcome to BSMS

    The Blood Stocks Management Scheme was established in 2001 to understand and improve blood inventory management across the blood supply chain. Hospitals and Blood Services from the UK and Republic of Ireland are currently participating in the scheme.

    Central to our work is VANESA, a data management system, where hospital and blood service data is collected. In return participants can view real time data and charts.
