NHS Blood and Transplant Blood Donor Sessions

NHS Blood and Transplant is asking blood donors in Yeovil to make an appointment to donate blood to help keep stocks healthy throughout the autumn months. Dates of sessions taking place in Yeovil are - Tuesday 21st of October 2014, Tuesday 11th of November 2014, Monday 01st of December 2014, and Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th of December 2014.

Although overall blood use within the NHS has reduced, thanks to improvements in clinical and surgical practices, hospitals and patients still rely on more than 7,000 people attending a donation session every day across England and North Wales.

It is important that vital blood stocks are maintained at all times, as red blood cells have a shelf life of just 35 days and platelets a shelf life of only seven days. NHS Blood and Transplant needs to collect enough blood in the right quantities to meet patient needs and regular donors are crucial in enabling us to do so. 

You can register as a donor, find out whether we’ve got a session coming up in your area and book an appointment to donate whenever and wherever you are by calling 0300 1232323 or by visiting the website or by using our app on your Android, Windows or Apple device. To download an app for your device, search 'NHSGiveBlood' in the app store.
