More about giving blood
Blood Donor 24
Blood Donor 24 is a team of emergency response donors who pledge to give blood within 24 hours.
Patients across Scotland rely on platelets, including people with cancer and leukaemia .
How much do you know about your blood? We aim to have six days supply of each blood group at all times.

Each precious blood donation has a very short shelf life. We have to act fast to make sure it goes where it's needed.
