Blood is something we all expect to be there for us when we need it, yet only 4% of us give blood. Many people would not be alive today if it wasn’t for the generosity of donors.
There are 1.3m registered voluntary blood donors in England and North Wales. Blood is collected from these donors, processed, tested and delivered to hospitals to help save and improve patients´ lives.
The aim is to provide donors with an accessible, safe and appealing service so they can give blood at a convenient time for them. There are 24 fixed blood donation centres across England and 88 mobile blood collection teams running about 23,000 blood collection sessions a year in communities across England and North Wales.
