History
This marked the offices of the Greater London Blood Transfusion Service between 1945 and 1986.

The Greater London Blood Transfusion Service was started by the then Honorary Secretary of the Camberwell Division, Percy Lane Oliver in 1921. He was asked to find a suitable donor for a patient at King's College Hospital. He set up a panel of voluntary blood donors who were able to give fresh blood to hospitals in Greater London and soon panels were set up all over the country.
