How do changes to restrictions on non-essential services, restriction of movement and age restrictions apply to Lifeblood?

Blood donation remains absolutely vital and is exempt from any restrictions on movement. We are incredibly grateful to all our donors who have donated throughout the challenges of the last year and urge you to continue doing so. 

Donating blood and plasma remains an essential activity and lockdowns, travel and venue restrictions do not prevent people from giving blood - we need you more than ever! There are still patients in hospital who need blood and are relying on people to continue making these generous donations.
