Available to both regular blood donors and those wanting to give blood for the first time, the online donor accounts make it easy for donors to
book, view and cancel appointments
change their contact details, and
review their donation history
How do I open an account?
The sign up/sign in process is simple and can be started directly from this news story.
Donors can also sign up/sign in by searching for your donor centre on scotblood.co.uk, then clicking the 'Sign up/Sign in to your online account' link on the blue announcement banner.
Filling out the registration form will automatically generate a return email containing a link, which must be clicked to complete the sign-up process.
The online donor account consists of three main areas: my appointments; my details; and my history.
Tells you when what date you are eligible to make an appointment from
Reminds you of your blood type
Searches sessions that suit you according to date or location
Enables you to make, view and cancel appointments
Confirms your personal details including Donor ID number
Allows you to update your contact details
Gives you a snapshot of your donation history
Gives you access to search your donation history over the past three years, stating venue, date and whether the donation was successful
The project will later extend across the country, with community blood donation sessions added on a rolling basis over the next twelve months.
If you give blood at one of our five regional blood donor centres, you can register for your online donor account today. If you’re a donor who has already used the new online account system, you can give us feedback by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
