Where can I donate convalescent plasma?

There are convalescent plasma donation centres throughout England.

You can travel to donate if there is a coronavirus local lockdown in your area. Travelling to donate plasma is classed as essential travel under government guidelines.  

The map shows the current venues where you can donate plasma for use in COVID-19 treatment trials in England.

We are only collecting plasma in these locations. To donate in Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland please use the plasma programme links below.

You will need to be able to travel to one of these venues if you want to donate plasma. See a list of donation venues.

You will also need to have an appointment.

Appointments to give plasma

To donate plasma you must be invited to an appointment through our convalescent plasma programme.

To find out if you are eligible to donate, please read the information about who can donate before completing the online form to volunteer.

After completing the form to register your interest, we will be in contact to discuss whether you can donate and book an appointment for you.

They are well-equipped, have large populations of potential donors nearby, and we can offer a wide range of opening times.
