Why become a blood donor?
The availability of blood and the products that can be produced from blood is an essential part of our health care system. Without an efficient and well supplied blood donation scheme many of the procedures we take for granted from the medical services could not take place.
We tend to take it for granted that if we are severely injured and require a transfusion that suitable blood will be available as easily as water from the kitchen tap.
Blood and its components are essential for surgery as well as for the treatment of many cancers and immune system deficiencies.
A precious gift you can give is your blood!
Being a blood donor is easy and rewarding, too.
It’s not often you can spend 10 minutes and know you’ve made an invaluable contribution to someone’s medical care.
