It doesn’t take long to do and you can help save or improve up to three lives each time you donate. So what’s stopping you?
Blood donors can now create their own personal account
which links to their existing blood donation records. This meant they can book, amend or cancel their own appointments online.
You can help the boost stocks of blood by becoming a donor if you are generally in good health, aged between 17 and 65 and weigh at least 7st 12lbs.
And right now, the service says if you have blood group O negative please book an appointment to give blood because your blood group is needed.
