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