As part of National Blood Week, NHS Blood and Transplant have launched a campaign to get more people to give blood. We need over 204,000 new donors to come forward to replace people who can’t donate anymore and to make sure we have the right mix of blood groups.
You won’t miss it when you give it; but patients could miss it if you don’t. Do something amazing and save or improve up to three lives by giving blood.
I try to give blood as often as I can. Even with my troublesome veins it is generally a painless and efficient service. It doesn’t take much time out of your day to do something amazing – so sign up if you can!
