World Blood Donor Day - Friday 14 June


Every minute NHS hospitals in England need 3 lifesaving blood donations, that's 3,700 donations a day.

We're a great nation of givers - whether it's making a cup of tea for a colleague or bringing in treats for the team.

Giving is in our blood and its blood we need more people to give to save lives.

On Friday 14 June, we're supporting National Blood Donor Day - we would encourage everyone who is able to, to book an appointment to give blood. You could save up to 3 lives in just 1 hour.

'I have to compliment everyone on their pleasant persona and their expertise and knowledge. By the end of the 5 days, I did not feel as though I had been in a hospital ward and was very relaxed.'

Patient, Ward 16 Orthopaedics, University Hospital of North Durham
