A major Tallinn hospital is seeking blood donors after stocks have dropped to a critical level.

The North Estonian Regional Hospital (PERH) in the Mustamäe district of the capital says that its supply of rhesus-negative A and O blood groups in particular are running perilously low, meaning its preparation for emergencies is not as good as it could be.

Potential donors can attend a donor center in Tallinn, located at Ülemiste (Valukoja 7) and on Ädala 2 in North Tallinn.

An hour should be set aside to do so, though the actual donor process takes 5-10 minutes, the hospital says.

PERH says it also plans to have blood donor drives outside of Tallinn, and will also visit companies and other organizations for volunteers.
