SHOT was created in 1996 and now, in 2022, has been at the heart of haemovigilance in the UK for 25 years.
We want to use this year to recognise the contribution of everyone that has supported SHOT over the last 25 years and made it what it is today – our reporters, our team members, our steering group and working expert group members, the MHRA, the UK blood services, our blood donors, the UK transfusion committees and our colleagues across the world.
Thank you to everyone who has been involved with SHOT!
