Giving blood

Giving blood

Blood and plasma donation remains absolutely vital. Travel and venue restrictions do not prevent people from giving.

Lifeblood’s top priority is the safety of its donors, staff, volunteers and, of course, blood recipients.

Lifeblood’s most recent Coronavirus update states “our donor centres are strictly regulated spaces, so we have always adhered to strict sanitation protocols including wearing gloves, wiping down surfaces after every donation and using single use sterile collection kits for every donation. We are also implementing further measures to help protect our donors and teams.”
