Local Blood Donor Venues
It is vital that people continue to donate regularly, particularly during the summer holiday period, why not make an appointment online or by phone.
If you have never given before you must be between 17 and 65 years old and in good health. You need to weigh more than 7st 12lb (50kg). Regular donors can give blood up to the age of 70 and can give up to 3 times in one year.
The National Blood Service need more regular donors to maintain blood stocks, so whatever your blood group - O, A, B and AB, whether you have positive or the rarer negative blood group - the NHS Blood & Transplant Service needs it.
Blood stocks of negative blood are particularly low at the moment, so if you haven't given before or haven't given for a while please make an appointment. Your blood donation could help up to three people. Blood is not only needed in emergencies with a growing population they need 200,000 new donors just to keep the blood stocks stable.
So what's stopping you? Why not get a friend or family member to go with you if it is your first time. It takes less than an hour of your life to save someone elses! What better gift can you give than the gift of life!
Did you know that 96% of the UK population relies on the other 4% to give blood! What better gift can you give for FREE - do something amazing - give blood!
