Jehovah's Witnesses Information


The Hospital Liaison Committee (HLC) of Jehovah’s Witnesses have been established worldwide for many years. They are here to assist with advanced preparation for having a Witness patient, and are available 24/7 to provide support. Their services are free of charge and not of a religious nature.

The HLC are keen to work with doctors who have experience in bloodless medicine and are willing to treat Witness patients, in principle, without blood.

At times they (HLC) have to refer patients to other hospitals, as we are unaware of local doctors who would be prepared to assist. Would you be willing to be contacted when a relevant case arises, to consider taking on a Witness patient? If so, please let the HLC (details below) know.

The HLC are available to meet with doctors to inform and explain about the HLC as a resource, provide up-to-date information about non-blood medical alternatives and treatment plans, and answer any questions.
