This article describes the TRALI reduction policies which were introduced by the National Blood Service in late 2003. Consideration was given to the reasons for their introduction and how the changes were implemented. The observed effects which followed the introduction of these policies were examined by analysis of reports to the Serious Hazards of Transfusion (SHOT) Scheme.
