Where can I donate convalescent plasma?

You can donate convalescent plasma in various cities across England.

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

You will need to be able to travel to one of these venues if you want to donate plasma. You will also need to have recovered from COVID-19 and have signed up and been accepted on our convalescent plasma programme.

Giving plasma to help COVID-19 patients is considered essential travel.


Most of the venues are blood donor centres in larger cities. 

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

We will also use new venues in key cities just for plasma donation.

Appointments to give plasma

In most cases we also collect blood and platelets at these venues so there are limited appointments for plasma donors each day. This means you cannot give plasma without an appointment and we need to check you can donate before offering you appointment. 

If you have recovered from COVID-19 and are interested in donating plasma, please fill in this form. We will be in contact to discuss whether you can donate and book an appointment for you.
