We are continuing to test a new IT system for blood transfusion and have another query. The ward client view does not display the check digit for blood components and some clinical staff have not fated the blood component as the numbers do not match. We the HTT maintain that the check digit should be visible when staff fate blood components but we have been asked to provide the evidence:

'We need clear documented evidence that the check digit MUST be visible on the ward client screen.

Emails from colleagues or concerns it “could” be a risk won’t cut it Im afraid – I need something that clearly states it is a requirement'
