Most people can give blood, but before we accept your blood we need to ensure there’s no risk of us harming you or the patients who will receive it. Use the below links to see if you are eligible to give blood and to gain advice on preparing to give blood.
Any other questions or queries please contact us on 042-37422140 & 141 or via the submitting blood assessment form. Fill out a Medical History Questionnaire and discuss answers confidentially with a Medical Historian.
Male donors can give blood after every 12 weeks. That’s approximately every 3 months or 4 times in a 12 month period. Female donors can give every 16 weeks or approximately every 4 months.
Only 38% of the general population are eligible to donate, but fewer than 10% of those eligible actually donate.
Please use the information on this site as a general guide; an evaluation by a medical professional is the only way to determine eligibility.
Because blood is a living tissue that is transplanted into another human, the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in an attempt to ensure a safe blood supply, has imposed strict controls on who may donate. If you discover that you are not eligible to give blood, you can still save lives by providing blood for research, coordinating a blood drive within your organization, volunteering your time, or contributing financially. However you participate in our programs, you are helping maintain the health of our community. Thank you for your dedication.
