Am I eligible?
Most people are OK to give blood but we check each time that there are no reasons why we should not take a donation from you. This is because we have to take good care of you when you give blood and be sure of both your safety and the safety of any patients who may receive your blood.
In order to become a blood donor you must be in
1) good general health
2) be over 17 and under 66 (for your first donation)
3) weigh at least 50 kgs (7 stone 12 lbs)
