National Blood Week 19-25 June

Over the last year 900,000 people have given up their time to help patients in need.

We need over 6,000 blood donations every day to treat patients across England.

Why give blood?

Giving blood saves lives.

The blood you give is a lifeline in an emergency and for people who need long-term treatments.

Many people would not be alive today if donors had not generously given their blood.

Who can give blood?

Most people can give blood.
