Convalescent plasma materials
NHSBT is collecting COVID-19 convalescent plasma for a major coronavirus treatment trial, and if the trial is successful, widespread use in hospitals. Convalescent plasma is the antibody-rich plasma of people who have recovered from COVID-19, which can be transfused into people with COVID-19 who are struggling to develop their own immune response.
Anyone who has had coronavirus or the symptoms can offer to donate at a donor centre by calling 0300 123 23 23 or completing the online form at www.nhsbt.nhs.uk
Please use these materials to help promote convalescent plasma donation and encourage people to register their interest in donating.
