NHS Blood Services
NHS Blood and Transplant need over 6,000 blood donations every day to treat patients in need across England, which is why there’s always a need for people to give blood.
Each year approximately 200,000 new donors are needed, as some donors can no longer give blood. Around half of current donors are over 45. That’s why more young people (over the age of 17) need to start giving blood, so the NHS can make sure they have enough blood in the future.
Most people between the ages of 17-65 are able to give blood so to find out who can give blood, and to book an appointment to give blood.
