To help minimize Red Cell waste, the BC Provincial Blood Coordinating Office (PBCO) coordinates a Provincial Red Cell Redistribution Program. Participating small and medium-sized hospitals send blood that is nearing its expiry date (10-14 days before expiry) to a designated large hospital where blood is more likely to be used.
