Can I still donate blood during a lockdown?

Yes. Donating blood is an essential act of care-giving. You can still donate during the current lockdowns and we encourage you to do so. 

All Lifeblood donor centres across the country have remained open during recent lockdowns.

Occasionally we may need a short-term closure of a donor centre, but there will always be plenty of donor centres open to ensure we keep collecting enough blood for people in need.
