Giving blood during COP26


From Sunday 31st October to Friday 12th November, the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (also known as COP26) is taking place in Glasgow.

The Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service will collect blood donations as usual throughout, but there have been some adjustments to regular sessions across the country.
