Coronavirus update

How we're working to respond to the challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is resulting in new and fast-changing areas of research for us as well as considerable challenges to the donation, storage and transplantation of blood, organs, tissues and stem cells.

However, with the help of donors, staff, partners and the wider NHS, crucial donation, manufacture and supply is being maintained, and new areas of research and development are underway.

Find out about the work we are doing and the impact of coronavirus on different parts of NHS Blood and Transplant.

COVID-19: convalescent plasma

We are leading a programme on behalf of the Government to collect blood plasma from recovered coronavirus patients for clinical trials.
