Blood is something we all expect to be there for us when we need it, yet only 4% of us give blood – many people would not be alive today if it wasn’t for the generosity of our donors. Most people can give blood, but all donors have to meet the eligibility criteria before their blood is accepted to ensure there’s no risk of us harming you or the patients who will receive it.

Where can I give blood?
If you’ve never given blood before you’ll probably wonder what our Blood Donation Sessions are and what happens there. They can take place at regular intervals at your local community centre, church, sports club or even daily at one of our permanent sites across England & North Wales.
You can book an appointment online with the give blood session finder and register for an account or by calling our Helpline on 0300 123 23 23.
